    Hi Stu,

    Sud Steiermark is part of Austria. (South of Austria).

    It is the only triangle I have :)

    Regards

    Nord Nordmark Jungbann 447 was in Wolfenbuttel, which is near Bruanschwieg. I'm sure Garry could help you on this, he has been monumentally helpful to me in this regard.

    Actually they all still exist Stu. Nordmark is called Schleswig-Holstein now but all of the others have the same names although the boundaries may have changed slightly. There were some land reforms in the 70s but without checking I couldn't tell you whether they affected these areas. This map will show you where the Gebiete were in 1939.

    Quick edit: my Bann lists are back up now in case people weren't aware. I've added some important info on the Reichsbanne S, BS, G and B triangles (see the 1938 and 1939 lists).

    Edit: picture enlarged and sharpened

    to be honest the map in the book itself is a bad print and very hard to read

    I've enlarged the image to 800 and have sharpened it a little.
