    2/82 and 5/82 are mentioned in my list (earlier post), but remind it is
    always possible the units were re-located and this was not noted in the
    RAD Verordnungsblatt.
    The names mentioned are all honor-names. There were most often
    announced in the Verordnungsblatt.

    If I do find my other lists I will check for more information. I did find
    the list. I added more information to post 10. Please consult!

    For those unknown with the abbreviation K.
    This means Kriegsbesetzung (wartime duty).
    Often it is explained and identified as "Kirenes",
    which is Norway and "Karelien", which is Finland.
    This is NOT correct!

    There are various booklets with historical information about units with honor-names,
    but the "bulk" of names is to be found in the RAD Verordnungsblatt. Pitily
    when such name is mentioned, they do not mention the location, but the day of
    granting or issueing! I do have hundreds of such names listed.

    I once started with a list of all known unit-numbers, but I do not have the time to
    add the additional information I have and so finish the list. None of the known and
    available lists is complete, as they mention just bits and pieces. There must exist a
    full official list from the RAD High Command, but I have never seen it, not heard about
    its existance in the known German archives!

    Mr. Saris sounds so formal. I prefer either Wilhelm or Wim. Okay?
    This goes for all of you!
