Hi,
I have found the following information from a prisoner captured in the 272 VGD on 04 February 1945:

“PW saw the Bn Hq of a Sturm Moerser outfit at 062252. Location of the batteries were unobtainable, but the calibre was said to be 210mm or larger.”

I have thought that this could be Sturmmörser Batterie 1000 or 1001 if “Bn Hq” means “Battery Hq”. But Batteries 1000 and 1001 were attached to LXXXI Corps and 272 VGD was part of LXXIV Corps (ARKO 474). Is there any other alternative?

Regards,

Hello Sturm, it was the s.Art.Abt. (mot.) II./115 - the one and only unit with 21 cm Mörser 18 in North-Africa
(Later re-named and part of a Afrika-Artillerie-Regiment)
