6th PzDiv 4th Kompanie

The combination of Kompanies in this Division is unusual. PzRgt 11 with two battalions (3rd & 6th K) had been joined by a third battalion that was made up by 65th PzAbt. For some reason when this unit joined the Division its nomenclature never changed and 65th PzAbt was not subsumed by PzRgt 11 as was the case in most other Division when such an amalgamation occurred. They also kept their Kompanie numbers and thus the anomaly of the 4th K occurred.

Even though their Stowage was shared, with the same system for holding jerrycans used in all three Kompanies and the two spare wheels on the engine side used on 3rd and 4th.
