Hi,
I was wondering if one of the markings would be correct for the MP platoon of the 2nd armoured div.
I want to put them on my jêep.So it has to be correct.

2∆-X-P-8 (8th vechicle-MP platoon-2nd armour)
or
2∆-X-502P-8 (8th vechicle-502nd MP comp-2nd armour)

Are you certain Lloyd? Not my speciality at all, but I found something while searching which seems to make the second sound more likely.

Here is a link to the entire manual if it's of any use.
