That's what they have done in the past Dennis, so I assume so.

Hi Lads,

Was there today and yes the removed items are in the rear of the vehicle. They have not been re attached after the vehicles were painted.  I spoke with one of the boys their, he stated that those fittings were creating issues with regards to issuing the blue slip.

Cheers Paul.

Was there today also.

Mentioned to me that they are sprayed at Bandiana.
Contents of bags are not resprayed so you have to spray them to match if refitting them.
Each bag carried a ARN id.
Some 110s had no bag visible.

My pick for o/all cond. was 51-498 but even that one had some small bog on the top line of the driverside mudguard. Most all had that plus some had boot indents on the bonnet and top of mudguards that were simply painted w/o attempts to hide the dents, so check the photos accordingly.

History buy was the 110 FFR 49-069: E Timor, Arty, Gunnery comp. mod to ROPS. Checked the log entry -it was 1st Fd Regmt RAA
