On 19 September 1954, the troop trains were dispatched from Berlin- a oenewei a 25X1 usen south of Cottbus, and at least two troop trains went from Feankffart/Odor toward Groben. All trains carried components of the 7th Gds Meez Div. Other observations indicated large-scale troop movements in the area of Cottbus-Hoyerswerda on and after 19 September 1954. It is now definitely clear that large contingents of the 7th 25X1 Gds Moos Div assembled for field exercises in the Got-us - Spremberg Forst area, and that, in connection with these field .exercises, additional troops f r o m t h e Lieberose area m a y h a v e arrived b y road and i 1 . The field exercises terminated at the latest on the evening of 23 September 1954 when the first contingents returned to Frankfurt/Oder 25X1 by road and rail. The tabulation again indicates the rail movement of contingents of the IX Mtz Rifle Corps from the Schwerin railroad district, and the 34th Arty Div from Wildpark to the assembly area 25X1 of the corps before the beginning of the maneuvers about 29 September 1954. Cale. The troop trains from kltengrabow carried components of the IV Arty Corps and/or army artillery units of the Third Shock Army to the assembly area of the IX Mtz Rifle Corps. . The troop trains carried tank units of the 9th Mecz Div which returned from field exercises which extended from the Peitz troop training grounds to the area east of Jueterbog. The return movement was previously reported. Cynt. According to an.yunar , e-tra n went empty from Frankfurt/Odes a"J%na em 29 er , probably to pick up disohargees. If the present report, that shuttle-train oaded, is correct, it would be the funk indication of repatriation of disahargees. The other shuttle-trains went to Brest-Litovsk where replacements were to be entrained. 25X1 Approved For Release 2007/12/06: CIA-RDP80-00810A005400050009-1
