I'm not getting anything out of the signature, which is a "scribble" issue rather than any (none) question of originality.

The scribble is puzzling because I can't recall seeing ANY such ALLIED designation for a demobilized but not yet disarmed Wehrmacht command like this in a Luftwaffe general's biographical entry, only the naval "German Mine Sweeping Administration." VERY interesting item from the weird summer of Year Zero. beer.gif

Here is another thread with an ALLIED designation for a Wehrmacht formation that was NOT listed in the Luftwaffe general's official service biography:
