Note
 
a. These were provisional units, to be formed in the warning phase preceding actual mobilisation, from pupils of the Royal Military School (Koninklijke Militaire School, KMS) in Weert, the Special Officer Training Centre (Opleidingscentrum Officieren Speciale Diensten, OCOSD) in Breda and the Royal Military Academy (Koninklijke Militaire Academie, KMA), also in Breda. Unit strength and organisation were probably similar to that of NATRES units, as their role was more or less the same. At some point these units would be disbanded, probably once mobilisation was completed.3

Platoon and group commanders would be chosen from OCOSD pupils, as these were sub-officers and reserve officers; their mobilisation role was part of their training as of 1985. The platoons would be filled out by KMS pupils (sub-officers in training), the company staffs would be formed with KMA pupils (officers in training). Unit strength and organisation probably similar to NATRES: in 1983-1984 NATRES had adopted the platoon organisation of the territorial security infantry companies, which indicates a wish for a standard unit type for this role. Hoffenaar en Schoenmakers, op. cit., 119-120, 143. The aforementioned anonymous article notes that all provisional security platoons would be placed under command of NATRES company staffs, which seems incorrect given the apparent presence of company staffs. Disbandment: the official order of battle (NIMH 430, inv. nr. 54) shows these units as peacetime units (as I have done above), probably on the assumption that mobilisation would be timely, in advance of hostilities. It also shows that they were scheduled to be disbanded on Telegram A, which was not part of the mobilisation telegram sequence. Telegram A would also disband the Hohne and Langemannshof Barrack Commands, the Military Constabulary Detachments at the Netherlands embassies in East Berlin, Warsaw and Moscow, and the UN Infantry Company in Lebanon, so we may assume it signalled the breakout of war. After disbandment personnel would probably be reassigned through the replacement system. Anonymus, loc. cit. These units are not included in the total peacetime strength above.
