DOP, Field depots, warehouses, Central Bases NKO

Post by Der Alte Fritz » 30 Sep 2021 09:49

I am looking for sources on two subjetcs:

1) What did Divisional Exchange Points (DOP) and field warehouses look like?

I have a little information on these for instance:
Defense scheme of the military warehouse No. 1428
Schemes. Archive: TsAMO, Fund: 369, Inventory: 6725, File: 80, Sheet of the beginning of the document in the file: 27
Authors of the document: 17 A, Lieutenant Sikharulidze
Describes combat operation: no data

Схема обороны военного склад № 1428
Схемы. Архив: ЦАМО, Фонд: 369, Опись: 6725, Дело: 80, Лист начала документа в деле: 27
Авторы документа: 17 А, лейтенант Сихарулидзе
Описывает боевую операцию: нет данных
https://pamyat-naroda.ru/documents/view/?id=132630688

Some other details in these identical (?) documents
https://pamyat-naroda.ru/documents/view/?id=262181942
https://pamyat-naroda.ru/documents/view/?id=262181940

a pamyat-naroda.ru search for the term "склад" finds 318 documents but these are mainly just short reports.

2) Information on the Central Bases of the NKO
I have two main sources:
Golushko, I. M. Shtab Tyla Krasnoĭ Armii v gody voĭny 1941-1945 [Staff of the Rear of the Red Army 1941-45]. Moskva: Ėkonomika i informatika, 1998.

Skryabin, S. N. ‘Sozdanie baz snabzhenii͡a T͡sentra’ [Establishment of Supply Bases of the Centre]. Voenno-Istoricheskiĭ Zhurnal [Military History Journal], no. 10 (1986): 54–60.

and early ones (pre-war or June 1941) are listed in
Артиллерийское снабжение в Великой Отечественной войне 1941-45 гг. [Artillery Supply in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945]. Moskva: GAU, 1977. https://www.soldat.ru/news/242.html.

One thing I would like to clear up is the date of NKO Order No.300
It is listed here for 1941:
300 Об организации на узловых станциях отделений вещевых складов НКО Наименование уточнено на основании данных, полученных на ВИФ РЖ http://www.teatrskazka.com/Raznoe/Prika ... 1_all.html but the document link (http://old.russ.ru/forums-new/war-ist/m ... 39003.html) is broken

and here for 1942:
300 Организация вещевых складов на узловых станциях Дублирование номера
http://www.teatrskazka.com/Raznoe/Prika ... 2_all.html

Russian Archive subject list has it under 1942:

Thank you Anatol, I have seen several maps on Pamyat Naroda which show the location of DOP (Divisional Exchange Points) as a circle with an 'X' in the middle however I am particularly interested in what the structures or dugouts looked like which made up DOPs or Полевой склад - field warehouses as I am working with a group of archeologists exploring the Berlin battlefield and trying to identify various large holes dug into the ground.
