Hi Eric,

The unit is 3 Combat Engineer Regiment (3 CER). The 5519 is the unit ERN , the Lazy "E" is the Military symbol for Engineers, and the cattle head ????

Cheers,

Mick

Callsign 95 ???
The callsign Nine (or Niner) reflects the Command Element of RAAC, Arty. or even Inf. Battalion etc.
As in the Commanding Occifer of an Armoured Regiment would have a Callsign of Niner.

Sub elements in that Regiment would also have Callsigns designating their role.
I just can't remember who had the Callsign 5 (Five)
So their Callsign on the radio would be Niner Five.

Some member with recent memories might be able to help.
