1938 Czech service units

You were kind enough to provide the service units of the Border Area (Hranicni Pasma).
Do you know which service units the Border District (Hranicni Oblasti) had?

Iam afraid that things are getting little mixep up... so put it into order:

Hraniční oblast(HO) - border area - equivalent to infantry division, it's service units were "discussed" in previous topic
Hraniční pásmo(HP) - border district- equvialent to army corps

So, Hraniční pásmo was supposed to have : ( I will use eng.terms used in previous topic)
+"weapons park"/ ammunition column (numbered 61-66)
+signals park (61-66)
+3 field hospitals (25-42)
+2 sanitation columns (17-28)
+2 dentist ambulances (17-28)
+2 medical automobile columns (17-28)
+ QM park (61-66)
+group of field bakeries (61-66)
+group of field butcheries (61-66)
+veterinary ambulance (43-48)
+reserve of horses (61-66)
+automobile park (61-66)
+2 train columns (85-69)
+field post (35-40)
+3 labour companies (93-110)

Hraniční pásmo XI and XII also had "engineer park" (61-62)

Note that service units for an army corps were basicaly the same, only difference being that all corps had engineer park.

Final note:
Iam sorry, but I got little confused with border battalions - Hraničářský prapor 1 and 21 were not motorised and not attached to fast division.

Once again, many thanks. :D

I hesitate to ask for further information. If it's OK with you, let me know.

Don't hesitate.
Iam quite glad that somebody even interested in organisation of the army.
Even here in Czech, most people are interested in technical aspects like fortifications and air force - you can find more info on individual pillbox than on average divisional commander.
And "career" historians like to overlook military apects of Munich and deal only with diplomatic side of the crisis.....

Great, thanks.

To start with I would like to identify the service units of the divisions, corps, border districts, and armies by number.
