Unit Tac Plate would be   Red Plate = Infantry.  White Numbers = 56.
Unit Reg Number would be 6490  on the top of the Christmas Tree.
Brigrade Marking is probably 1st Div. (looks like you've already got it)

My understanding is the unit sign is on the left as you look at vehicle and formation sign is on the right.
Cheers,

Mick

The formation sign is on the near-side (kerb side) and the unit sign on the off-side (driver's side) at least in countries where you drive on the left.

In Vietnam it was reversed because Australian troops were driving on the right as per the US standard.
