What kind of organization was Hitlerjugend-Segelfluggruppe Prag? I think that Segelflug stands for glider flights?

Dear Edward

Correct. This unit is included in my list as it is noted as per Georg Tessin 'Verbände und Truppen der deutschen Wehrmacht und der Waffen-SS im Zwelten Weltkrieg 1939 - 1945 Volume 17' as well as Deutsches Rotes Kreuz Vermisstenbildliste [DRK Missing persons list]

The Freikorps Sauerland (Free Corps of Sauerland), was a paramilitary association created by Gauleiter Albert Hoffmann in September 1944. The name was taken from the nationalist free corps active during the unrest immediately after World War One.[1] In October, the Freikorps was officially established, and accepted by the Party Chancellery of Nazi Germany, where Martin Bormann, head of the Volkssturm associated the Freikorps to his services, as they often completed tasks, missions, etc. with them in the final months of the war. Hoffmann saw the Freikorps Sauerland as an "elite unit" in his Gau Westfalen-Süd campaigns against Allied Forces (notably, this is also where Albert Hoffmann had served as the Gauleiter before war had broken out). Only volunteers were accepted.[1]

The Freikorps fought on the Western Front towards the later half of the Second World War. In April 1945, units of the Freikorps Sauerland fighting in Ruhrkessel (the Ruhr Pocket), suffered somewhat heavy losses from Commonwealth and Allied Forces. The Freikorps Sauerland was among many divisions and armies serving in Westphalia, Olsberg and Altenbüren [de], where the Brilon Circle of Westphalia was located.

Members of Volkssturm (Freikorps) Sauerland were issued field grey or brown uniforms from the Organisation Todt or RAD (the National Labor Service), and fitted with standard Volkssturm rank insignia.[1] Special insignia were established for the unit, consisting of a white cuff title bearing the inscription “Freikorps Sauerland”, a sleeve patch and a helmet decal.[1] Preserved helmets are usually from the Luftschutz (Air Protection Service) or of the M42 type. Weapons were usually older German and foreign (Czech, Italian, French, etc.) rifles, plus the ubiquitous Panzerfaust and hand grenades.[1]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freikorps_Sauerland

Freikorps Sauerland was established by order of the National Socialist Area Leader (Gauleiter) of Gau Westphalia-South. The unit maintained an elite status by only accepting volunteers. Freikorps Sauerland continued to serve as a militia group for the Sauerland region through October 1944. After official constitution of the Volkssturm on 25 September 1944, the Freikorps Sauerland was fully established and incorporated into the Volkssturm.

Its strength consisted of several battalions including a regimental staff which was something of an exception within the Volkssturm structure. For every district within Sauerland one battalion of Volkssturm was raised. These factors coupled with the desire to accept only volunteers was a way of maintaining elite status within the larger Volkssturm structure. As a unit the Volkssturm Sauerland maintained its former title "Freikorps Sauerland" in keeping with its historical roots.

Members of Volkssturm Sauerland were issued field grey or brown uniforms from the Organization Todt or those from the National Labor Service (Reicharbeitdienst-RAD). A special insignia was established for the Volkssturm Sauerland units which consisted of a white cuff title bearing the inscription "Freikorps Sauerland."

A cloth sleeve insignia was also produced and worn in combination with the uniform. This insignia was also reproduced as a helmet decal that was sometimes worn on the left side of steel helmets. Like all Volksstrum units, the leadership and recruitment of "Freikorps Sauerland" was directly under the control of local National Socialist Party leaders as well as members of the General-SS (Allgemeine-SS).

Dear All

I have decided to take on the monumental task of converting the Tessin/DRK units to the my post. It is going take sometime. However please see below for an understanding of the situation.

Footnote

Es läßt sich nicht abschließend klären, in welcher Gesamt-Stärke der Volkssturm dann wirklich zum Einsatz kam, die Suchdienste führten nach 1945 zeitweise 175.000 vermißte Volkssturmmänner. Auch eine lückenlose Übersicht über die tatsächlich aufgestellten Volkssturmeinheiten läßt sich nicht gewinnen. Auch in den Vermißtenbildlisten des DRK bzw. im „Tessin“ sind die Volkssturm-Einheiten keinesfalls vollzählig erfaßt

Translation.

It can not be finally clarified in which overall strength of the Volkssturm then really used, the search services led after 1945 at times 175,000 missing Volkssturmmänner. Even a complete overview of the actually established Volkssturm units can not be known. The Volkssturm units are by no means completely recorded in the lists of missing persons in the DRK or in "Tessin"

Dear Sir,

Were there any more Freikorps that were raised and seen heavy combat late in WWII?
