[1] As foreseen by the 01.10.1943 Szabolcs Plan, the peace time organization, personnel although without equipment for the 15th Reserve Division were prepared in case of mobilization. However, the equipment never became available, and the 15th Division (the second wave of the V Corps) was consequently never raised. The personnel was used to fill up other units of the V Corps.
