    Would anyone be able to help me with info on what kind of purpose this unit had? Reason I'm asking is I have a named helmet with FP number corresponding to Gen. Kommando I AK. u. Jagd u. Begleit-Kommando, found in Wolchow. I've gathered that it would be a command unit for Armee Korps 1 but unsure of the rest.

    Any help appreciated!

    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    Thanks, Paul! It's the second bit I was kind of wondering about --- So, they were tasked with escort of HQ personnel and defense of current HQ?

    btw; here's the helmet
