NOTES:
[1] As foreseen by the 01.10.1943 Szabolcs Plan, the peace time organization, personnel although without equipment for the 26th Reserve Division were prepared in case of mobilization. However, as this equipment was never forthcoming, and the 26th Division (the second wave of the IX Corps) was consequently never raised. The personnel was used to fill up other units of the IX Corps, and the division was finally dissolved in March 1944.
[2] The 26th Cavalry Company only as of 01.10.1942.
