XII. SS-Armee-Korps (Korps-Truppen)

Post by Kriegsberichter » 10 Oct 2009 14:42

Does anyone know what Korpstruppen did belong to HQ XII. SS-Armee Korps...
By the end of september 1944 HQ XII. SS-AK was send to Holland... It needed 5 trains to transport the whole HQ...
That is more then a few kubelwagen!

What kind of Korpstruppen did belong to HQ XII. SS-A.K. at that time

Hi - there is no "XXII. SS-Armee-Korps" (probably a typo)

The XII SS corps had the following subordinate units:

Gen. Kdo. (Corps HQ - possibly combined with the HQ of 310th Artillery Division)
SS-Korps-Nachrichten Abteilung 112 (the signals detachment of 2 companies)
SS-Feldgendarme-Trupp 112 (1 platoon of military police)
Werkstattzug 112 (workshop company)
Kraftf. Kp. 112 (motor vehicle company)
Stab Art. Kdr. 112 (staff artillery commander)
Sto. Pi. (Garrison engineers?)
Kps. Kart. St. 112 (map-making detatchment)

Various units were attached to the corps during its roughly 8 months of existence:

Panzer Lehr & 7th Panzer Divisions
9th Panzer & 15th Panzergrenadier Divisions
3rd Paratrooper Division
59th, 176th, 338th 353rd Infantry Division
183rd, 363rd Volksgrenadier Divisions
548th Grenadier Division
Kampfgruupes Rautenfeld(?), Kastendick(?), Salge(?), Mitte
Possibly an unknown Volksstrum Police Regiment

SS-Korps-Nachrichten Abteilung 112 (the signals detachment of 2 companies)
SS-Feldgendarme-Trupp 112 (1 platoon of military police)

Thanks for the info ! :D

Any info about Kampfgruupes Rautenfeld(?) will be most welcome. Wass Rautenfeld a staff officer at the time attached to XII A.K. and it it possible that some of the troops were from Handschar Division or Moslim volunteers?
From what troops was it reased and where?

Is there any info on SS-Sturm-Kompanie XII.SS-Korps and SS-Bataillon XII.SS-Korps ( http://www.axishistory.com/index.php?id=500 )
