Establishment table for the Rifle Division Shtat 04/820. That was organization applied in the 1939 Khalkhin-Gol campaign, Polish Campaign and Soviet-Finnish War of 1939-40.

Art,

Thank you. The earlier organizations are often elusive.

The relatively small number of 82mm mortars reminds me of French infantry organization in 1940.

Cheers

It should be added that a next wartime establishment 04/20 was issued in September 1939, but it wasn't actually applied, at least was not applied until the end of the Finnish War and the establishment 04/820 still remained in force. The same is true in regard to tank brigades: brigades participiating in the Finnish War were organized according to pre-1939 establishment.
