Can anyone help with some markings on my Cooks Bodyworks trailer?

My guess for this one is Iraq 2003:



Skull and cross bones unit marking?:


Div sign?:


Cheers!  ;)

Cat under palm tree is 105th medium battery.
They did time in Helmand prov.
Dunno if they shipped any vehicles over but the denuded look of the paint may say something.

I picked up a couple of series 1's from a station south of here, one has a couple of door panels on it with some sort of defense markings, Can anyone shed some light on what t may have been from?

More like commonwealth than defence I expect.  I thought the broad arrow was a Commonwealth rather than Defence Motif, might be wrong though. 

That said though, the Lands Department as a state based organisation still exists in tasmania.  Interesting markings though, wonder what the number indicates?

One of the Unimogs in the Sydney auctions, 38-626 has the image of "Bung" from the Wizard of Id cartoon, on the sides of the doors. Now Bung is a bit of a lovable rogue, but he also happens to be the logo for the Finks Motorcycle Club, and having this on the side of your truck might draw some unwelcome attention from both sides of the law.

What Army Unit has adopted Bung?, and are they aware of the connection to the Finks!!

The Finks bikie club has now patched over to the Mongols BC. This means that Bung is free of those controversial motorcycle clubs :)

Very early in this thread Glen mentioned the SA codes for gunbuggys.  Today I was moving my buggy and noticed the aluminium key tag.  On the tag is "LANDROVER SW5" it is similar size and stamped the same as other Army key tags I've seen.

Any idea what the SW5 could refer to?

Could it be Support Workshop 5 and refer to the time at 2AOD workshops?  Or am I completely off track?  :'(

Hi Diana,

mine has SW6 written on the wings and seat box, Aussiegregmac suggested this meant a vehicle from Fire support weapons....

Would it be too much chance for them to have been in the same unit?

Its at least a start.  :)
