It was formed from various personnel: mostly ex-Schutzmannschaft and Ukrainian Liberation Army units, though there were AA-helpers and firefighters from Berlin area.

According to David Littlejohn
Panzerjager Brigade near Berlin
Reserve Regiment from Denmark
Infantry Regiments from Holland
Police, security, and Cossack units
Total of 38,000 men!
Anyone can identify any of these formations?
Thanks, AHK

Surprised at total lack of any responses.
Following info is from Richard Landwehr, Fighting for Freedom.
The reserve infantry regiment was the 281st.
Total strength meant entire army was 38,000 to 40,000.
Col. Dyacheko commanded the division.
