NOTES:
[1] The 9th Reserve Division, although foreseen by the 01.10.1943 Szabolcs Plan, could not be completed owing to a lack of heavy weapons, particularly artillery and its continuation was cancelled. The division was removed from the peace time order of battle and dissolved in April 1944 after its remnants had been transferred to the 5th, 12th, and 23rd Reserve Divisions earlier that month.

A 9th Border Guard / Infantry Division was raised from the 9th Border Guard Brigade in early 1945. (See there.)
