I've suspected as much for some time, since I've never located any other info on HKAA 532. But that leaves open the question of what formed Stab II./Afrika-Artillerie 1? Also, note that the batteries of the various battalions forming the new regiment were reasigned throughout, I've only managed to identify HKAB 364 as 10./Afrika-Artillerie 1 and 4./ Heeres-Küsten-Artillerie-Abteilung. 149 as 2./Afrika-Artillerie 2 - does anyone know any of the other battery redesignations?David W wrote:II/115 renamed I/1 Afrika 05/10/42.

HKAA 532 D.N.E it's usually a typo for HKAA 533. The mistake occurs in genuine original contemporary documents. (No one's perfect! Even Germans!)
BTW, s.Artillerie-Abteilung 408 was renamed in October as well, I believe on the 5th, I'll see if I can confirm it.
