Does anybody know if all the Char Bs in this unit were flamethrower variants?

According to Concord Publications #7039, Armor at War Series: German Armored Units at Arnhem September 1944 by Marcel Zwarts Panzer Kompanie 224 (mislabeled as 244 on the OB diagram but correctly identified in the picture section) was composed of a HQ element and 3 platoons.

The HQ had 1 PzKpfw 35s and 1 Flammpanzer.
The first and second platoons had 4 Flammpanzer and 1 PzKpfw B2 each. The third platoon had 5 flammpanzer.

Hope this helps
