II./JG 5 - Stabskompanie

Hallo,
what is exactly the meaning of II./JG 5 - Stabskompanie?
I mean, I think HQ company, Jagdgeschwader 5, but "II" what is exactly?
Thanks in advance

II. Gruppe/Jagdgeschwader 5 = 2nd Group of the 5th Fighter Wing. The Gruppenstabskompanie consisted of just about everyone assigned to this Gruppe except for the flying personnel, i.e., administrative, servicing, maintenance, munitions, armorers and similar.

If you surf around the Internet, you will find numerous sites where there are explanations of the organization structure of Luftwaffe air units.
