..and I just noticed there's actually a two spanners working under the Landrover.

I saw one pair of shoes under the front bumper at first, and now I see one arm and watch near the passenger doorway.

...and here's "25", something to do with RAA 131 Loc Div Surveyors.



The colours say Royal Australian Engineers; as do the numbers, but I am not too sure which unit.
Div Loc was artillery and had a red/blue Tac sign.
Get on the ball you blokes, there will be a test on this later on!!   ;)
For homework read this earlier post by Hotrover and memorise it.

Its a bit more involved. I meant the photo came from the RAA assn website, its their members. What 25 RAE could mean is therefore a bit open. It looks black like "att to HQ".

The soil colour doesn't look right for the Australian base at Vungers!!
551 has me fascinated, does anyone know what 1 ARU's number was?
1 ARU was a non Corps specific unit that held soldiers from all Corps who were detached to units whose numbers required them.
We had one bloke in our unit who served with us for at least 8 months that I know of and his name never shows up on any official 87 rolls. He does however show up as a member or 1ARU. I find it a bit strange that he served all that time without being a unit member whereas others came and went to and from Australia posted specifically to the unit.  I suppose "ours is not to reason why....."

I guess we won't go into OH&S issues here, or maybe we just can't see the vehicle stands in the photo  8)

I clue to a mystery posed by ZD further up thread.
On pg 68 of Mud & Dust in the arty section there a photo AWM ERR/68/0472/VN showing a M2A2 gun with unit tac 44 and the caption ID says the Nasho gunner is from the 102 Fd Bty, 12 Fd Regt, May 68.

I can never remember the name for that transceiver set?

Weren't they the same set fitted to the Boeing 707?

Was reading the section on the HMAPCs in the mud and dust book and on pg 107 Mike mentions that the tac 21 is the RAE 1 field Squadron.

It think we may have thought 21 Support Troop at one time.

Glen, can you remember if the numbers 57 and 58 (red inf tac) related to one of the various RAR rotations?

That Land Rover 'Medium Radio Station' is one of my favorite images (if that's possible). The M&D caption provides details of the radio unit and its usage in SVN. An AN/TRC-75 (Duplex) and visible is the TT-4/TG teletypewriter, I think made by Kleinschmidt (sp?). Big lump of a radio set for a Land Rover.
