Dear Reiner

You have quoted me 3 times without commentary using the same quotes... what are you pointing out so that I can understand your question.

Your response would be appreciated.

Most respectfully

Additional Information

The attempt by the Gauleiter of Tyrol -Vorarlberg, Franz Hofer, to rename the Volkssturm to Standschützen in 1945, was rejected by Adolf Hitler. However, this did not prevent Franz Hofer, from having the Volkssturm battalions of the Gau wear Standschützen battalions their own sleeve characters, in a diamond shape, with a Tyrolean eagle on the swastika and the inscription "Standschützen battalion ( place ) ".

http://memim.com/standschutzen.html

In the Osprey Book - Resistance Warfare 1940-45 by Carlos Caballero Jurado on page 5, states that two Standschützen-Bataillon were named -

Standschützen-Bataillon Gossensass
Standschützen-Bataillon Mals

These are in addition to what I have previously added.

Hi Mark....

Did these standschutzen bataillones see significant action in those days against US or Free French forces ?

In September 1944, the Gauleiter were ordered to form the Volkssturm in a last effort to mobilise all of the male population. The Gauleiter took up the position of Reichsverteidigungskommissar (RVK) (English:Reich Defence Comissiner), in competition to the Wehrmacht.
