Transfer Records

Post by doogal » 09 Feb 2019 23:49

I would like to ask;

When a commanding officer or other officer, lower ranked soldier was transferred from one command to another in the field.

Say for ex. When GFM von Manstein was ordered to move as CO 11th army to CO Army Group Don...

Did the formation losing its CO or individual always have typed confirmation of the transfer. If so how did they manage this kind of record keeping considering the time of the formation in the field and the numbers of transfers(movement of personnel) there would have been for each individual unit/formation. :milwink:
