Jeep bumper number - 146 Engineer Combat Battalion

Recommended Posts

Do we have any knowledgable people who can help me with bumper numbers for my Jeep?

I have read the book ‘Clear the way!’ about the 146th Engineer Combat Battalion from Normandy to Berlin. I would like to mark my Jeep up to represent this unit when I take it over to Normandy in June.

The only photo I can find of a vehicle in use by this unit has the bumper partially obscured. 

I am thinking it would be something like:

V 146E     *     HQ-4

based on this:

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

Chris

What you've got above looks correct  Chris

V= 5 Corp,  146E is your combat engineer battalion, * is the US Army marking for front bumpers HQ= Head Quarters section, 4 = 4th vehicle in the order of march
