(8. oružnička pukovnija)
by H.L. deZeng IV

Existence very doubtful - the author of the cited reference reproduces part of a report by an 8th Gendarmerie Regiment dated 28 March 1943 that discusses an increased inflow of Ustasha recruits from the Omiš area as a result of the combined Axis forces driving the Partisans out of that part of Dalmatia during Operation “Weiss.” There is no other reference to a Gendarmerie regiment with this number in any other published or unpublished source, and there certainly would be if it had existed.
