Title: Vehicle Names - Army ones!
Post by: Phoenix 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.

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.

(http://i100.photobucket.com/albums/m2/Auntikinus/Army%20Trucks/Mk3/door-markings007.jpg)

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

Well what do you know, wish I had been able to keep her!

The stickers on the doors I actually took the paint off, and they were a mailled fist over a boomerang, denoting school of armour, although painted over I could see why you thought they were frill neck lizards!

The rest fits with what I recall from the chap we bought it from who had purchased her from a chap down the east coast.  I'd love to see some photos, even if it would be sad not owning her any more (in fact any photos you have i'd love to see :) ).  Amazing to know the whole story though.  It's on about it's 6th or 7th owner now as I know the current owner in victoria who bought it form the young tasmanian chap I sold her to.

Victorian Owner
Tasmanian Owner
Me
Trevallyn chap I bought her from
St hellens owner
Hobart engine reconditioner
tasmanian owner before that  and before that, who knows!

48-184

ANIMAL, was just visible when 110 purchased, rubbed some paint back and it appeared clearer, went round the outline then repainted door top and reapplied as found. The name appears on both door tops.
