    That appears (to me) as Ln.Kp. (Luftnachrichten Kompanie - Air Signals company), of K.Gr. IV./158 (IV. Staffel, Kampfgruppe 158 - 4th Squadron of Bomb Group 158).
    I’ll have a quick check on K.Gr.158..

    I suspect the word (possibly, words) beneath to be an abbreviation of the airfield.

    Nice piece! The "8" is a "3". ;-)
    It's VI. Gruppe / Kampfgeschwader 153 and the airfield should be Fliegerhorst Liegnitz.
    Look here: Kampfgeschwader 153

    Well spotted, Austrian!
    That explains why I was getting nowhere with 158..
