Post subject:  Junkers Ju 52/3m _K+PR query

This photo of a Ju 52/3m in Russia is from eBay. Most of the code is visible and looks like a unit code rather than stkz and therefore aircraft 'P' of a 7./ staffel. Only the first numerical character is missing...but I cannot find a unit which would easily provide the missing character?

Festive greetings

Armin over at LEMB has identified this aircraft as VK+PR. WNr.7398 of an unknown unit. There was however no resolution as to why the P appears to have a staffel colour ID.

I may have a very provisional suggestion for this.

Could VK+PR, and a large number of other Ju52s with the VK+ code actually relate to Verbingbungskommando (S) units? I have observed that a couple of known Go242 had a VK+ code. So could this be one of those unusual coding systems? Are there any other photos of Ju52 (or other transport/glider) VK+?? coded aircraft which could perhaps prove or disprove this?
