The Divisionsstab z.b.V. 140 was formed on 7 September 1944 under 20. Gebirgs-Armee in Finland. By that the existing Division Kräutler was "etatisiert" that is this formation was made a permanent headquarter. The staff was called also "Divisionsgruppe K" furtheron and had a number of Heerestruppen under its command. The unit was redesignated 9. Gebirgs-Divison (Nord) on 6 May 1945 (more planned than realized, on paper).
