Help with symbols WW2 German military vehicle

Can anyone here help determine the full meaning of the symbols? I know so far this is Telephone. The markings are on a vehicle door from a Mercedes L1500A one and one half ton personnell vehicle. This door looks all original. Seems quite rare also. Has anyone seen a door come back to the States from WW2? Thanks

Hello!

The shield above shows the coat of arms of the former county of Ravensberg and was carried by the 6. Infanterie-Division, which was raised in Bielefeld, the former capital of aforementioned county.



It's still part of many coat of arms in the region, Bielefeld for example:


The tactical sign stands for Fernsprech-Kompanie (tmot.) (telephone company (partially motorized).
N.A.6 is the abbreviation of (Infanterie-Divisions-) Nachrichten-Abteilung 6, the signals battalion of the 6. Infanterie-Division.

Wow ! thank you, that was a fast response. Have you ever seen doors off the old WW2 vehicles come around before, is this common or ? I do not want to sell at this time but I also wonder what a collector value this may have. Thanks again.
