Hi!

In German they were called "nicht etatisiert", meaning not listed as unit in its own right within the military budget plan.

Hi again,

the RIR 213 was part of the RIBr 89 in Oct. of 1918 and maybe earlier . The RIR 213 was based in Schleswig Holstein, in the north of Germany. They have a printed regimental history.

Indeed, often a specific Company, or even a Battalion was taken from a Regiment and designated as the Sturm Unit of the division

Although in some divisions they seem to have picked the younger and fitter men to form a sturm unit, they were still on the rolls of their parent unit as far as pay etc went.

Dante,

please note that RIR 213 was not, as you write, part of the 89. Infanterie Brigade, but of the 89. RESERVE  Infanterie Brigade (just stress this, because it´s easily confused. The 89th IB was Saxon).
