    I have one more that I do not understand. This is from BSA data. In the infantry column it lists:

    335 стр.дивизия = 335 ? Division?

    any idea?

    I just found out the person who made notes from the hand written Russian was making mistakes. They called the 1 Reserve Army = 1 Румынская А (1 Romanian A)

    I know this can be very hard to read hand written Russian (from 70 years ago) and note the correct abbreviation!

    Thanks again!
    It depends on where this army existed. In 1942 it defnietely was Reserve Army
    Romanian Army was designated as 1 A (Р)

    As for abbreviations I collected them on my site. You know where, do you?

    But, I have one more Abbreviation I'm not sure of:

    ОМД = Special Power Artillery?

    Thanks again.
    Hmmm.
    Probably it's Отдельный минометный дивизион
    Separate Mortar Battalion
    but if it's "гв. омд", then it's Separate Guards Rocket Launcher Battalion.

    Ordinary mortar battalions more often had abbreviations "оминд" while rocket launchers - "гв. омд"

    Hope your brains still not boiling

    Two hard to find Abbreviations...

    оптл = Separate Artillery Division?

    озаб = Fire Platoon?....something to do with ARTY


    Any ideas?
    Possibly you misread them. I guess they are:
    оптд - Отдельный противотанковый дивизион - Separate Antitank Battalion

    озад - Отдельный зенитно-артиллерийский дивизион
    Separate Antiaircraft Artillery Battalion

    OCR often mixes up "л" and "д" letters
    also Italic "б" and "д" are similar
