hi,

what is your source? As far as I know the Kfg. was subordinated to the 31.SS-Frw.-Div. (11.10-28.10.1944.)

An foreign volunteer unit (mainly ethnic albanians from kosovo, but also albania)
Ljuboten batalion, made up of formerly Balli- kombetar unit members, but because of the formation
of the 21st ss skanderbeg, many former ljuboten members conspripted for the skanderbeg (around 6000 members were albanians) so there is a link for ljuboten and ss skanderbeg (both units mainly operated in kosovo-macedonia.)

Amazing:
photos of SS "Florian Geyer" members in Yugoslavia (Croatia);
Bruno Streckenbach (1st photo) dancing with a local girl (did his wife know?)
etc...

Btw, I can't find when was Streckenbach promoted to SS-Oberführer rank?

Cheers,
Ivan

My usual nitpicking...

No 11.SS-KavDiv.
31. was simply an SS-Frw.Gren.Div.
No SS-mot.Div. 'Hermann Göring'
No SS-Rgt.GD

Yes, I also spotted these mistakes.

Most likely SS-Rgt. GD was Das Reich in Serbia. I have already asked about HG SS-Div. Don't have a clue about 11. SS-Kav. Div. Perhaps Kosaken-Div.?
