Place and date of formation are not known, but the seat of Velika Župa Zagorje was in Varaždin. On 1 October 1942 the Bn. HQ was in Varaždin with 1st Co. detached in Golugovec guarding a mine that was located there. Total Battalion strength was given as 110 on 1 Dec 42. No further information has been found, but it was probably disbanded in 1943 and its personnel used to replenish other Ustasha units. (1)
