I assume that "L 54719" number presents feldpost number, if that is so:

Feldpoststempel 1939-1945: 54719 (FELDPOSTMARKEN)
Verwender: Postamt | Verwendung als: Aufgabestempel, Tagesstempel 12.3.1943-7.9.1943 5. Batterie leichte Flak-Abteilung 718 o; 1.11.1944 nicht verwendet, 23.12.1944 5. Batterie leichte Flak-Abteilung 718 o;
Typ: K1 (Einkreis Rundstempel) / Form: Kreisstempel
Verwendungszeit: 12.3.1943 bis 21.5.1945

Go to the pull down menu in Postverwaltung (Gebiet, Land) and choose 248 Deutsches Reich 1933-45

Enter in the number in this section: oder Nummer eines Nummernstempels
