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.

Hello all,

I'm trying to find any history of my Perentie - It has a black '57' stenciled on the driver's door left bottom and a green '57' on the front left unit plate holder. They have spray-painted over the christmas tree and its numbers but they look a lot like '5975'. I have been told that it may be 3rd RAR, but it sounded a bit tenuous. Any ideas?

Thanks!

G'day Mate,

It maybe 41 RNSWR  IT's ERN or Christmas Tree number is 5935

It's not 3 RAR as its ERN is 4998.

Something to work with ?

Mick
