  On 19 AUG 1944 the GefStd moved to Reims, where it was located until 28 AUG 1944.  I think it is conceivable that the GefStd was located in this facility:  

GefStd Lft.3, Reims ?



  The GefStd then moved to Arlon where it was located until 25 SEP 1944.  Here Lft.3 was renamed Lw.Kdo. West.

  Lft.3. was renamed Lw.Kdo.West 30 SEP 1944, and it established it's GefStd in Schloss Dehrn in the village Dehrn by Limburg.
