This battalion first appears in the documents in summer 1944 as a component of IV Ustasha Brigade in Lika and northern Dalmatia. It origin is unknown, but its designation suggests that it was formed by splitting or dividing XIX Ustasha Battalion which also belonged to IV Ustasha Brigade. On 1 September 1944 XIXa Ust. Replacement Bn. with 1st – 3d Co. was noted as being in Brinje/20 km E of Senj on the Dalmatian coast with 675 officers and men.
