Airborne jeep markings

Recommended Posts

This is my favourite airborne jeep pic, and a source of inspiration for my airborne jeep, but is the yellow and green flash correct, and what does the number in the middle of the wheel mean?

There has been some confusion on the markings over the years, the correct would be a square with green over white with a square line not a angled line. But I have seen both types of markings.


The jeep above is a HQ vehicle


A diamond for Headquarters Troop, triangle for A Troop, circle for C Troop, and square for D Troop. In the center of these markings is a number. Probably a vehicle loading number within the squadron, e.g. 15 inside square (D Troop), 18 inside circle ( C Troop), 21 inside triangle (A Troop).
