Default Offiziere und Mannschaften des Rabes

This is the inscription on a postcard given to an officer of Festungs Pionier Bataillon 14 in southern France for new years 1943-44. The inscription reads: "Ihrem verehrten Kommandeur, herzliche Neujahrswünsche, Offiziere und Mannschaften des Rabes"

Does anybody know exactly what the "Rabes" is supposed to be? A surname for Pionier troops? A unit insignia? Something else?

Thanks

JL
