Division fought against soviet`s 8th Army from late springs to autumn 1944 on line of river Narva - from Vasknarva (on South at outlets of river Narwa to lake Peipus) to rivers Porkuni and farther in direction of town Putki (on Nord). Regiments of Grenzschutz became decimated, and remainders one included to 20. SS-Div.

I'm content with Your answer.
I found this „Assault-Brigade Narwa” in the Biography of Arthur Kopp (http://www.geocities.com/~orion47/WEHRM ... RTHUR.html). Did the Estonians the Division z.b.V. 300 serve?

I also found something that could be only the "Sturmbrigade Narwa" at NARA T-312-1633 (pp 28/29).
The was written the short cut "St.Br. Narwa" it was equipped with message from 01.07.1944 with:
3 x 7,5-cm-Pak
5 x 8,8-cm-Pak
7 x RSO
2 x 8,8-cm-Pak
1 x RSO

Looking at the files in NARA T312 R1632 (Armeegruppe Narva - KTB 5, 6, Anlagen) I find in June 1944 a couple of Tagesmeldungen regarding St. Regiment Narwa. On 21-6-1944 on, it is (on one page) named St. Br. Narwa.
On 21-6-1944 e.g. it consisted of:
3 7,5 cm PAK
6 8,8 cm PAK (+ 1 in repair)
3 5 cm PAK
5 Pz. V (strangely assigned to 4.SS-Freiw.Pz.Gr.Br. Nederland)
7 Pz. IV (1 belonging to Nordland; 5 to Pz.B.285)
19 StuG and 9 StuH (belonging to St.Br.303)
There are much more Tagesmeldungen on this NARA roll.

Wasn't it StuG.Br. 303. The brigade was transferred to Finland only a few days later.BramvanS wrote:19 StuG and 9 StuH (belonging to St.Br.303)

I recently received a few photos with captions.
The pictures are labeled on the back with Sturmbrigade Narva.
These are private recordings and my guess is that they are the news company 701 d (mot.).
