Hi Darren..these flight gruppe markings are quite common on these 1st Lufts..but not all of them. Carrier Preference.
Someone who studies these flight gruppes might be able to identify which group it belonged to. Just out of curiousity who is the producer?

So possibly linked to this unit, formed at Lippstadt, North Rhine-Westphalia on 1.4.37, as Stab. III/KG254, it evolved into other units until it became 3/KG54 on 1.5.39. Here's a link to their wartime activities.
