In these two photos are a Jeep and Dodge WC52 of the 53rd Airlanding Light Regiment (Worcestershire Yeomanry). I am having difficulty working out what those markings are on the drivers side of the bumper. Looks like it could be part of a battery formation plate, but its not clear, and what is that odd looking character?

I have heard a few theories but not found anything concrete yet. Has anyone got any ideas?

Thanks for the quick reply. All my vehicles and equipment as in my signature are marked up as 53rd, and I am working towards getting them as accurate as possible.

I go to tonnes of shows, but I mostly stick to shows within about 50 miles of where I live in Newport South Wales. Simply because I am not interested in trailering them around, I have them to drive and enjoy. I only go further for longer one off things, W&P in the past, France a couple of times, Jersey, etc.

I'll be going to the Victory show this year, but not with any vehicles. Just coming up in kit to enjoy the show as a walk on.

I may just see you at Victory then. I'll probably make the trip up for the day as it's not too far from me.
