Perentie Markings: 3835 christmas tree, door shark, and others
« on: September 09, 2017, 08:29:11 PM »
Can anyone please help identify what the markings on Perentie GS 49-580 mean. it belongs to a member of a car club I am in.
Per the photos it has a ERN of 3835 with a black/white christmas tree (assuming they are the original colours), together with a shark on the door and the numbers 42 on one TAC holder and 2 with crossed swords on the other.

In addition is it possible to get a copy of the archive photo, and or auction photos?

2 div tpt unit?

Hi All
You got the 2 Div right Geof but not transport. 42 is Artilery. The ERN tells me it is 23 FD REGT. You will find 2 Div takes in all the reserve units so if you do a little research you will find 23 FD REGT is a reserve umit based in NSW

Since 2011, it has been known as '23rd Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery'. Which belongs to the 5th Brigade of the 2nd Division.

It has depots in both Kogorah and Sutherland.... which of course is the territory of the Cronulla Sharks... perhaps why the shark emblem.

Cheers.

Thanks guys, once again this site and its members have been extremely helpful.
All the markings and auction photos answered but if someone knows how I can access the archive photo it would be great.

Except that Kogarah is the next suburb to Carlton Oval in the heart of Dragon's territory. Perhaps the logo should be St George slaying a shark?

Although both Sutherland and Kogarah councils cover LGA that take in part of the Georges River and Botany Bay which are well known for actual sharks.

AGAS 5 Thanks for the earlier replies, but the comment

Another ill informed post from the predictable. Why not get off the proverbial...
makes me think someone has had a bad day, as it isn't the usual friendly banter that I am used to on REMLR, but maybe I'm reading it wrong, let me know if that's the case.  BTW I would love to drop in to the depot, but its a bit far from Perth.

Black and white? It must have been overpainted. The Christmas Tree should be coloured, 3835 should be (top to bottom) Yellow, Cam Green (body colour), Yellow, Primer Grey.

The xmas tree looks like it is part of a sticker, and the colours may have faded off, I'm guessing they used stickers on some newer vehicles.  Thanks all the same for clearing this up as I read the REMLR Library markings section and I wondered why it differed from the number.

Hi David, the link was above albeit looking a bit like a 6x6 link.
