The command was set up in April 1942 from parts of the pioneer teaching battalion (sF) and the light assault boat command 906 in Langenargen. The command intended for the landing in Malta was transferred to Italy by rail transport in mid-June 1942, but the operation was called off. On July 21, 1942, the command was then provided for use with the 18th Army in the northern section of the Eastern Front. From Italy it was then transferred to Narwa via Germany and Lithuania in September 1942, where it was assigned to the Pioneer Regiment Staff 770 for the planned conquest of Leningrad. Subsequently, the command operated training service. In December 1942 it was then moved to Krems after the conquest of Leningrad did not take place. In April 1943 the command was then transferred to the Kharkov-Poltava area, where it was assigned to the XXXXVIII. Panzer Corps was assigned. This was followed by operations to build temporary bridges in the rear area and to secure the bridge on the Donez. At the end of July, the command of the 17th Army was transferred and transferred to Kerch. Commandos on ferries and boats in the Kerch Strait were posted here. On October 7, 1943 it had a stock of 72 light assault boats. On October 2nd and 3rd the command carried out the last return landings over the Akhtanisovsk Liman. On October 11, the command for coastal security and outpost tasks in the Lazy Sea marched to the north coast of Crimea, where Romanian troops are being transferred to the Arabat Peninsula and fed there. In November 1943 they moved into winter quarters in Wassilewka in northern Crimea. From January 10, 1944 it was subordinate to the XXXXIX. mountain corps. On April 9, 1944, the Russian spring offensive against Crimea began. On April 13, 1944, the Führergruppe with the I. and III. Platoon cut off in Soviet breakthrough through the Perekop Isthmus, while II Platoon was able to break away from Perekop along the west coast by sea to Sevastopol, arriving on 16 April 1944. The I. and III. Zug wrecked its boats and was subsequently almost completely wiped out. The command remnants were housed at Sevastopol and used for transport tasks. From May 5th to May 12th, 1944 heavy losses occurred again when the bridgehead around Cape Chersonnes was cleared. By May 13, 34 soldiers reached Romania. In June 1944 the rest of the command moved to Weißenkirchen/Wachau, where it was reorganized as the 911 light assault boat company. In mid-August 1944, the company moved to Arnhem by rail. In November 1944, the company was assigned to the 6th Panzer Army and transferred to Blankenheim in the Eifel. During the Ardenne offensive, the company was to carry out assault landings over the Meuse, the Albert Canal and the Scheldt. However, the landings were not carried out. The company marched to the east bank of the Rhine near Neuwied and landed 7th Army units there across the Rhine south of the US bridgehead east of Remagen. On March 21, 1945, the company was blown up by American units and retreated to Hamburg, where it was used until the end of the war.
