Post by: Mick on October 18, 2020, 07:18:23 PM
Hi Boys,

I have been meaning to do this for a while and sharing what information I have on tac plates for all to reference. Anyone who has more to add please do.

I`ll start things off with a couple of posts.

Cheers,

Mick

I could be wrong, but i thought 88 was 101 Field Workshop not 106 Fd Wksp.
After all was posted there for many years in the 70s.

Hi Hoo Doo,

Cheers mate ,

Nice collection, Mick. Great reference material.

Have you ever considered adding a date range/start date to each plate caption?

Hi Phil,

Thank you Monty :)



Hi Mike,

Thank you, thats a great idea  and will take a bit of work but is probably worth while. I`ll have a look at it. :)

I have a fair few more to post and will get them up first.

Take care,

Great collection Mick.

FYI - for the RASIG units, the word ‘Signals’ should be singular, not plural.

ie:
103 Signal Squadron
126 Signal Squadron
2 Signal Regiment

Cheers.

Never knew about 3rd Div.. could it be Dads Army? I'd join up. :)

(Seriously wonderful collection Mick - must belong in a equally good mancave...)

Mick,

Are these reproductions, original, or original restored, or a mix of all three, please? They look very clean: the only ones I ever seem to obtain are scratched, dirty, rusted edges, and so on.

Nice collection: good reference.

Mike

Hi Mike,

They are a mix of all three, some original unit plates. The 1st Div, Training , Logistic , and Field Force Commands decals are all original as is the Southern command 3MD, Army Head Quarters and 3rd Div decals. 

I have cranked out a few plates and will do a few more along the way. You planted a seed when mentioning in a earlier post to include relevant  dates used and will do some work on that. I've also made a couple of errors which I'll tidy up.

I am interested in the topic and feel a ready reference is needed with those inflicted with the passion of army vehicles :)

Any advice you might feel may help would be appreciated Mike.

Cheers,

Mick
