Whilst vehicles which were in Vietnam may have had such markings the RAEME Provos (inspection team) insisted that all such markings be painted out on vehicles used within Australia. My unit had a section in Vietnam but that did not wash with Their Lordships. No Christmas tree and no Skippy. Believe me or not I was one of the lucky blokes who had to paint them out with spraying enamel and a brush, lots of fun.

Ahh the Red Rat as a few refer to them.

On photos, while they may be the best legal steroids out there and appear online freely, there is still copyright implications that people have a rendancy to overlook these days unfortunately.

Thanks Dervish. I was wondering about the red kangaroo logos. I thought they might have something to do with Australia.

The red kangaroo (Macropus rufus) is the largest of all kangaroos, the largest terrestrial mammal native to Australia, and the largest extant marsupial.
