This is the NW Army after a reorganisation, almost at its peak. Like all orders of battle, this is only a snapshot of a certain moment and in this case a treacherous one as the army had grown so rapidly. It was soon to fall apart equally quickly, so many units had only a very brief existence. Units which are particularly uncertain are *marked with asterisks*.
The material is supplied by Reigo Rosenthal, who is pretty much the expert on this front of the war.
The number value in square brackets [X] is a value judgement by Reigo on the quality of the unit, from 1 to 5. (As a comparison 1 is the level of a fairly standard Soviet unit on this front. Only a very few Estonian units get 5.)

On 26 October a "Shock Group" was created, taking the 6th and 8th Regiments, and possibly 4 light guns (see bottom of the page).
By the middle of November the Division had the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Batteries of the 2nd Independent Light Artillery Divizion plus the 1st and 3rd Battery of the 1st Independent Howitzer Artillery Divizion. This probably arrived in late October.
In the second half of October the Division was supported by tanks (3 at a time) and sometimes the Swedish White Legion with them.

The Gatchina Jaeger Regiment started to form at this time in recently captured Gatchina. It is possible that this was using the Reserve Battalion as a cadre.
At this time, and for a short while afterwards the division was supported by an improvised armoured train made in Gatchina. It probably had artillery pieces.

The 20th Chudskoy Rgt was operating with the 1st Division.
The 24th Infantry Regiment was newly formed and officially part of the 6th Division but at this time operating under this Division.
The Baltic Regiment was a unit of the Estonian Army formed around Estonians of German extraction, but the other ranks of the 3rd company were Russians. A light battery of two guns soon arrived, but immediately went to the Shock Group. (1st and 2nd Companies remained in the rear at this time.)
The numbers cited by Volkov appear to be men, not bayonets. A figure of 1,350 bayonets is also given.
By the end of the month there were 4 German howitzers in the howitzer battery.

Kolyvan and Revel are Tallinn in Russian and German respectively. Chudskoye is Lake Peipus.
The trains each had a landing party of around 100 bayonets, one of which was the Swedish White Legion. These were at the time attached to 1st Corps as a combined Divizion but with the Swedes separately. The trains operated with 2nd Corps.
