Organization, SS Sicherheitspolizei Btl IV April 1945

  • Hello to all!

    Apologies for posting in English.

    I am looking for Gliederung information for SS Sicherheitspolizei Btl IV

    There were many Sipo Btl that were sent to the Oder Front in 1945.

    Were these organized on the 4 company battalion model (three line companies, one heavy) , or did they have a non-standard organization?

    SS-Sicher. (Pol.) Btl. IV, according to records was previously from Frankfurt / Oder.

    Ostensibly it was part of 606 Inf Div, but is marked on Le Tissier's maps as fighting with alongside 1. LAH Wach Btn at Alt Lewin 16 April.

    Any information on weapons and vehicles in the unit would be very helpful...


    Thanks!

    -Sharon

    That looks like it was a standard battalion organization with Stab, 1 - 3 Kp as line companies, and 4. Kp being the heavy company.
