Vehicle Names - Army ones!
« on: April 05, 2013, 10:22:39 AM »
Ok, I am starting a list here of names found on vehicles, and phtoos of them.  To be collated on the vehicle markings page of REMLR.

If you can, include a photo, description, name, location and the unit if you know, or think you do.

I can start with my old series 3,  33-727. It was a FFR, with "Coma ~ Toes" II painted on the drivers side air vent in a white script with a black drop shadow.

Well with all the military Land Rovers that I own, the only markings other than tyre pressures, speed warnings, were the call sign and unit markings for 2Cav on my 109 wksp 172-562

door markings 83 tech/supp (2Cav inverted triangle, with RAEME Spanner) A (aplha vehicle)
call sign 'Tassie Devil' as uncovered

and much later all replicated

I was helped with information by none other than RSM-A Peter Rosemond anyway cheers Dennis

Piston broke is the name of an old property near me, probably just a coincidence :)

Greg and Anthony, I have only just looked at this thread properly.

Your vehicle PETRI

is actually the word "PETROL" stencilled above the emblem and under the filler.

If you look at the pic now with that in mind it shows clearly it is petrol and explains why it was offset to the picture..


It is probably also stencilled under the pass side filler also?
cheers

kepp up the good work.

Freelandy,"trust me" would have been an armoured corps RAEME vehicle.The name sounds familiar,Im trying to find photos from my time to provide others with more info on their vehicles.Turtle was the name of my elect repair vehicle when I was at 2/14 LH in the late eighties early nineties.Very aptly named.The fitter armoures was called TARDIS,it had more hidden compartments for bits than the Dr Who one.It was also enclosed in steel not canvas.

My Mk3 Inter had "THE DERKERS" and "BRASH" + "WALSHY" on the drivers door.



It must have been early because it was on the DBG under the olive drab.

Phoenix, "COMA-TOES" II is my sign writing, 1990's if I recall. This was on a mates' SIII FFR and described his usual physical state while driving it in the bush. It is II because his first COMA-TOES was a cut-down SII ambulance he brought from a Warrant Officer at Dowsing Point, T Comd Workshops I think. I will look and see if I have any photos around, can't quite remember now.

Phoenix,

I followed up on that SIII FFR, the bloke who had it, well known in the engine reconditioning industry in Hobart, bought it about 1990. Saw it parked on the side of Collins St, left a note on the window for the bloke to contact him if he wanted to sell it. A week later he was the new owner.

Allegedly it came from Darwin, there were frill necked lizard stickers from Norforce on both doors, painted over. He had it for about 6 years and sold it to a bloke in St Helens.

Cheers, Keith
