Which Kommandantur ?

Post by Fredobedo » 27 Mar 2021 18:38

Hi everybody,
could you help me with the different name of Kommandantur :

Ok for Feldkommandantur / Kreiskommandantur.

But after we could find : Orstkommandantur, Standortkommandantur and Bezirkskommandantur. What is the difference between them ?

I found for the same town, the three of them.



thanks for you help.

Fred

Bezirkskommandantur - District Command/Headquarters
Standortkommandantur - Garrison Command/Headquarters
Ortskommandantur - Local Command/Headquarters (usually in towns)

Thanks Greg for your answer.

Does that mean that in the same city, there can be a kommandantur for daily life (Ortskommandantur) and a kommandantur reserved for troops (Standortkommandantur) ?

in Germany :
local Garrison are called standort. in regard of the size administrated by a Kommandantur (with a Kommandant) or a Standortältester (oldest commanding officer of garrison)
Outside Germany
Ortkommandantur was the lower territorial level in the Militarverwaltung with 4 levels : Ort/Kreis/Feld/Oberfeldkommandantur
Best regards
