Each German Unit throughout the war had a Military Feldpost number. This was the unit's identification number when family members and friends wanted to send mail to the corresponding unit. It wasn't unusual for the same feldpost number to be used for different units throughout the war. As one unit would be destroyed, then the number might have been reallocated at a later date. Listed below are all the feldpost numbers for the units involved in the Battle of Arnhem. Please contact me if you can provide any further information on this subject.
