This is garbled. It should read 5./Flieger-Ausbildungsstelle d.Lw. 12/13 from Gelnhausen. Gelnhausen, 15 km to the ENE of Langendiebach and practically next door to it, was a big glider training center during the war. "12/13" refers to Luftgaukdo. 12/13, which was created on 30 January 1941 when Luftgau 12 and Luftgau 13 were consolidated. Both Gelnhausen and Langendiebach were located within the administrative territory of Luftgaukdo. 12/13. Glider training establishments were always designated as "Stelle". This one was either the predecessor of or a component of Segelausbildungsstelle für Flugzeugführerschulen A/B (1941-44) located at Gelnhausen.
