Hungary. (Apr 44 - Dec 44)

25 Aug 44: Stab in Budapest - strength given at 111 officers and 168 men.

13 Dec 44: ordered disbanded with personnel to be used to form a planned Luftgaukdo. XV for Bohemia-Moravia (central and western Czechoslovakia), but this was not carried out. In the general confusion of the final months of the war, it appears that the Stab remained in existence, probably under the informal designation Luftgaukdo. Ungarn.
