Formed in Sarajevo but its date of formation is unknown. First noted in the surviving documents on 11 April 1944, although it undoubtedly existed for several months before that. In August it consisted of a Bn. HQ with 1st to 5th Co. in a strength of 1,125, and in November it had the same composition but its strength had been reduced to 1,013. It was always attached to the I Ustasha Brigade and is believed to have been absorbed into it in December 1944. No further information has been found. (1)
