SS-Infanterie Brigades

Post by coburg22 » 19 Oct 2010 18:29

Hello,

I performed a search and didn't find what I was looking for. Has anyone come across a Officer List for the 1. SS-Inf. Brigade (mot.) and the 2. SS-Inf. Brigade (mot.)? I have the diary for the first six months of the Kommandostab RFSS which included the above units but it gave me very little to go on. I also have the Kdrs. of the Brigades as most people do but not a Officer List. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

James

Hello James/Pena,
I've a reprint-edition from the Kriegstagebuch Nr. 1, Kommandostab Reichsführer-SS. Feldzug gegen die Sowjet-Union, 16. Juni 1941 bis 31. Dezember 1941. In it nothing concerning the structure on Kompanie-level or on platoon-level regarding both Brigades (or even on Regiment- or Battalion-level). Only mentioned are the Chefs des Kommandostabes beim RF SS, their Ordonnanz-Offiziere and the officers from the Führungsabteilung, from the Ober-Quartiermeisterabteilung, from the Abteilung IV (Sanitätswesen), from the Abteilung IIa (Adjutantur), from the Abteilung III (Gerichtsbarkeit), from the Nachschubdienste, from the Kraftfahrwesen and from the Nachrichten-Abteilung.

Greetings, Mike
