Marking on my 6x6
« on: December 20, 2016, 06:52:16 PM »
Hi

My 6x6 has the following markings on the door. Not sure what it signifies

It also has a crocodile on the tool lockers at the rear of the tray.

I was told by some Vietnam vets at Stand Down caravan park at Goomborean Qld (between Gympie and Tin Can Bay) that the 3 would be for 3RAR

Cheers

Deza

Thanks FFRman and Mick

Any idea what what WR2 means.

Also on the inside  of the drivers door written in black marker is stumpy not sure if that was the trucks name or the operators.

Hi Deza,

I'd say as a guess maybe a vehicle from the Workshop Company (Squadron).

Cheers,
