I have stumbled upon an item of SS personal equipment bearing the legend:
Fur Besondere Leistungen
I/11.
Mo.-Sta.

Could someone help me with possible interpretation please?

You got the unit number, but perhaps we can find in what town the Sturmbann was located, or at least the Mot Standarte.

Paul, is there any date on your piece of personal equipment with that legend? The use of Mot.Sta. ceased in the SS after 1935.
