Hello FRR Man,

Thank you for the reply. I thought there was a lot of space between the top rank of numbers and the first horizontal yellow stripe in the Christmas tree. I will look for a grey stripe tomorrow.

Kind Regards
Lionel

Looks like there is actually two. One on top of the other. Both the same though.
Lots...............

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!!
If you find any macks and mogs with the spy from mad magazine, the black spy, we painted them in places you could not see, under the bonnet inside the tool bins on the roof.

Pheonix.  while we're on the subject.  Have found that the USN for 51st Batt. FNQ is 6605
Confirmed by a reliable source.  Can you add that to the Vehicle Markings segment on the website.
First digit ( 6 ) coincides with the other RAINF numbers already shown.
Greg Mac.

Done ;)

Although it could be another unit.....   the scorpion as depicted here is the emblem of JTF 633  (possible locations - Iraq, Kuwait, Afghanistan... or just the UAE)

Thanks for the pics !

Hi All,

I was prepping the drivers side guard on my 2A 109" today and found this marking (RQ4)just above where the black out light is mounted. Any idea what it means? I think the missing letter is R.

Try sanding around the small dent and see if it comes up clearer either a R or possibly a H, looks like the white is over the red/orange. :)

Welcome to the new forum with registrant no 21 you have been around for a while

Unfortunately the area around the dent was chipped back to the original olive drab coat. This chip happened around 10 years ago not long after I had resprayed it the first time, from a passing truck on a single bitumen lane road which really pissed me off at the time. However I would not have noticed the red layer underneath if this had not happened.

It is definitely a red base with white stencilled letters. I am sure its not a H because of the angle of the remaining letter, I was thinking R possibly for "Royal Queensland" but it also could be an A, K or X.

The Motor expired on my 109 about 12 months ago so I am giving her a respray while I wait for funds to rebuild it.

Have not been on the Forum since it was on AULRO. I think I met Uncle Ho at the LR 50th event held at the Mount Gravatt Showgrounds in 1998 after which I think I registered with REMLR. The event was held by the LROC Brisbane who I am still involved with.

Ram skull over Lazy E - surely one of our resident RAEME crew can ID this? Matches the Christmas tree 5519.
