12./JG 2 Emblem on Bf-109G-1 high-altitude fighters


I refer to Karl Ries' book 'Photo Collection - Luftwaffe Embleme 1935-1945', with a contemporary photo of the above emblem (A silver (the Luftwaffe) eagle carrying a tattered British roundel), and short description that refers to the emblem being applied on the engine cowling (port side only) on one of the unit's Bf109G-1 high-altitude fighters.

On Michael Holms web-site I've come across two units with this designation, as follows:

a. 12./JG 2 attached to I./JG 2 from 01.01. 1943, and renamed 4./JG 2 on 21.09.1943, and
b. Newly formed 12./JG 2 that became a part of the third Gruppe expanded to 4 Staffeln on the above September date.

Providing that Karl Ries' reference to 12./JG 2 is correct... Could someone please help me to put the emblem in the correct time-frame? Which one of the above units, if any, was equipped with the Hoechenjaeger?

Any response that could help me shed some light on the above will be very much appreciated.
