G s l e n corps, which returned from special exercises on the Elbe River in the DessauuAken area. According to previous reports on transportation., these units went to Aken between 25 and. 28 May, coming from Saa.i'eld, Crawinkel and Ohrdruf, 710ther inforriation indicated that four trains went from Aken to the Erfurt regional railroad district and the E senaclh railroad station between 10 and 13 August f: These trains. arrong other units,, probably carried engineers of the XXIX Gds Ptz Rifle Corps,, It can be assured that, after mid-August, the Dessau-Aken area was occupied only by the two engineer regiments of the GOFG eam.ent? The trains mentioned in paragraphs 2 and 3 were previously reported The trains rftentioned in paragraph 2, however, according to information in Para ?aph 3 definitely went to Jueterbog-Altes Lager,, rather than the Halle railroad district Crnent the two trains went .from ue er g to Kuestrink The information that 'train was dispatched from Radis on the Bitterf eld-Wittenberg raa l_rorr.d ?l.irae, does not a ar credible. Nor. is Brest Litovsk believed to be the receiving statio I Con. ent a The two trains were probably observed during the loading and unloa.ddini)l in Hal.densleben.

AAA units of the 10th Gds Tank Div possibly returned to Wolmmirstedt,, A shipment to Jueterbog, however, could not be determined., The trains to Bernau probably carried returning AAA units of the 6th Gds Mec Div which, on 21 July had arrived at Jueterbog on trains -1poI trient ; Presumably shipments of tank units of the 7th Gds Mecz Div.. Prior to 23 August,, exercises of units of this division may have been held in the E c skow Grunow area. They may have started after 14 August, as, on this day, three tank shipnnents to Lieberose had been dispatched from Frankfurt/Oder. This would confirm the information according-to which night exercises, in wh:!_ch. allegedly no tanks had participated were held in the Frankfurt/Oder area from about 15 to 21+ August. . 25X1 Approved For Release 2006/01/31 : CIA-RDP80-00810A002400720007-9
