Odd Marking on Me109E Wing Cooler Flap

Hey guys,

This is an Me109E Wing Cooler flap that was recovered from a wreck.

This type of markings seems oddly familiar, but I cannot recall where I have seen it before...and the reason why it was painted.

Thoughts?

TIA

Mike

Personal opinion only, but:
I see a 'White M' that has been over painted with 'Red D'.

My thoughts are it is the coloured letter code from a schlachtgeschwader or zerstorergruppe. Why it was applied to the cooler flap I do not know.

yeah,

They are written too large and with more style (especially the "D"), to be some sort of ground crew/mechanic reference...

Anyone else have some thought on this?
