I'm assuming you are asking because of a signature. If so, do you have an image?

"i. A." Otl. "Frhr. v. Beschwitz"
(so, he was not the Kdt. but only an officer serving in that WBK.)

Thanks, so the rank stamp was referred to the Kdr (Oberstleutnant) but signature was from another officer serving there . ;)
I didn’t notice I.A.

This is the signature of Luftwaffe Oberstleutnant z.D. Werner Freiherr von Beschwitz (1884-1972).
There are times in history when staying neutral means taking sides.
