Situation with Armeeabteilung Narwa was more complex than presented here.
For example 1.6.1944 according to Ia documents:

Well, if you believe my words... :)
http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 76#p790776 also schwere Flak and StuGs were handed over, don't remember about SPW-s.
Of course I can dig up exact NARA reference.

Hi folks! Very interesting discussion about "Hermann v. Salza". I have during my research about the Battle for Narva found several Tagesmeldungs über Pz.- u. Stuglage. For your eventual interest, I will in attach two of these meldungs (feb and juli 1944) in this post.

All the best
PK

Hi Andrus, your document for 01st June 1944 is difficult to read, can you post it on the forum ?

No problem. First there is title, on the right is handwritten number of appendix (17), next there are some numbers of some vehicles, at the bottom of the page on the left is archive reference (bright text, added by me).
And as special bonus to you, because you always search old discussions before posting next question, there are numbers of antitank guns on the backside of the document :)

Do you know where these came from? Another unit or directly from factory (if so, which)? What other information do you have about these tank destroyers?

so why does this H.Gr. Weichsel document show, SS-Div.Nordland, Panther: 12 (13), for 13.2.1945 ?
