The Aserbeidschanische Feld Bataillon I./111 „Dönmec” was the first bataillon of the 111 regiment and not the 111. division?

Apparently the I/111 battalion was supposed to be a part of the the 111. division. The roman "I" indicates that if was the first battalion in the Azer legion.

Not first bn of the Azerbeidjans Legion but firs bn of all Ostlegions for the 111. ID.
Par example: Aserbeidschanische Feld Bataillon I/73 was formed 2.08.1942 as II. Ausb. Btl. der Aserb. Legion and Aserbeidschanische Feld Bataillon II/73 was formed as VI. Ausb. Btl. der Aserb. Legion

Bestreg.

Hi

This Wikipedia photo from my own collection and the Book...
The last photo (poster) in Armenian on my own collection too.


So, In Armenian KGB archives I find an info about Armenian and Georgian mixed battalion in Hungary in the end of 1944.
Have some one information about it?
May be this was a Georgian 796th battalion which included Armenian company from 808th reorganized one?
