Default NSKK dog tag

Hello,

I recently picked up this NSKK ID and was hoping for some help.
Its pretty hard to read but I believe this is what it says;
NSKK Mot Gr L
AUSL 9453 KRFTF (this last portion may be KRFIF) although I was hoping someone could give me a designated division or at least enough info that I could see where this group went during the war if thats possible?

Thanks
Brayden

Google result:

MOT for motor, GR for gruppe (group), L for Luftwaffe, Ausl for Auslander [foreigner], KRFTF

Found here in a photo caption:
https://books.google.com/books?id=em...20AUSL&f=false

See Chapter 4 “NSKK-Motorgruppe Luftwaffe”

KRFTF would denote Kraftfaher, driver. Would be interested to see pictures of this Erkennnugsmarke face on and also the reverse.

Awesome Information Guys! I really appreciate it, so this was for when the NSKK was mobilized/motorized in 1942 for the luftwaffe to help bring supplies and equipment to luftwaffe troops in need and this specific tag is for a foreign volunteer who was a driver for the luftwaffe but apart of the NSKK organization?
Hope these are better photos, I believe this tag may have been ground dug, either way really hard to read without getting the tag wet
