It consisted of two companies, augmented to three in mid-1941.
Commanding Officers were SS-Hauptsturmführer K. Buchegger from the start , replaced by SS-Hauptsturmführer M.Kneisl on December 18th, 1940, then SS-Obersturmbannführer H. Peter in 1943 and SS-Sturmbannführer M. Kneisl
The unit performed also guard duties at the concentratiobn camp Hradištko / Hradischko.

According to 'Murderous Elite:The Waffen-SS and its complete record of war crimes' by James Pontolillo an internal SS memo dated 14 October 1941 mentions the killing of 120 civilians in Prague and 71 in Brünn carried out by this battalion.
