Difference between Sede and Deposito?

Could someone tell me what the difference between 'Sede' (?Regimental HQ) and 'Deposito' (?Regimental Depot) was? Have I translated these properly?

Sede (location) = the place where the unit is based or, better, where the unit command is while the other subunits could be spread in a certain range around

Deposito (depot) = the logistical and administrative base of the unit, managing material stores and mobilization of personnel, forming and training new units

Usually, the "deposito" of a unit is in the same place of its legal "sede"

Note: all units have a "sede" but usually only regiments have a "deposito"

Many thanks for the explanation - it makes sense.
