    An interesting topic. However, like I've seen pointed out before --- does not the sheer amount of Stammkompanie tags available and the pretty high numbers on some indicate that the majority most likely actually were issued to recruits "in transit? Doesn't 2330 or higher in the 4 digits or even 5 indicate that a majority were just that? Ready to be proven wrong of course as I am no expert in the matter but still this is a point I've seen brought up by other knowledgeable people--- a quick search gave me Stammkompanie tags with numbers as high as 16216, there's tags with even higher numbers out there iirc.
    I understand this exactly the same as yourself and the high numbers support that .This was a reception / admin Kompanie through which recruits were processed prior to their joining the Training / Replacement Kompanie.

    Paul,
    So now it's clearer. Number 2330 belonged to the admin kompany processing new grenadier recruits for eventual training and replacement assignment.
    It remains confusing why such a high number for an admin company though.

    Simply the amount of men that processed through it whilst it was in existance , it clearly supplied a lot of men to 56 ID but also to other units.
