Independent SS artillery units

Post by andlug » 08 Jun 2019 11:34

I am interested in the Ardennes 1944/45 campaign ( the Battle of the Bulge).

Specifically, can anyone give a list of the independent SS artillery units ( ie non-divisional ones) that took part, and their strengths.

Various authors have named different units:
501SS heavy artillery battalion
502SS heavy artillery battalion
503 SS heavy artillery battalion
502 SS werfer batallion
508 SS werfer battalion

Maybe they were all there, or other ones were. To settle any doubt, it would be great to know where these units actually were during the campaign!
