Hungarian River Security Regiment?

Post by Dili » 15 Apr 2018 05:10

Wikipedia lists https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Hungarian_Army

Hungarian Navy probably In Novi Sad after invasion of Yugoslavia.

River Security Regiment (Újvidék (Novi Sad) after April 1941)

1 Battalion
2 Battalion
3 Battalion

Anyone knows what kind of forces and armament it had, and if any ships?

I don't own or have access to them, but Charles Kliment's two volume (with a third planned) 'Magyar Warriors' might have details on that question.
Good luck,

Dear Dili,

it seems those forces were armed with armoured patrol boats and possibly minesweepers.

This is a photo gallery of the Hungarian Royal Home Guard Riverine Forces:

Here there is the photogallery of Debrecen. One of the photos shows her anchored at Újvidék in 1941 with the fortress of Petrovaradin, situated across the Danube in Croatia, in the background.
