*-Restored data. A errata presents in original source.

*1 - Probably in original source this record contains a erratum and the 11th MAC contains not regiments but divisions....

*2 - in original presents word "Miner", but it isn't clear to what unit it concerns. To my mind this can be missed 3rd Gds. Miner Battalion (see July section)
