Buffalo Springfield roller

Recommended Posts

I have a Buffalo Springfield Roller . Built 1938/9 . I suspect it may have came to England to help with the war effort rolling runways etc . Any thoughts on how I might track down it’s history ? I’m posting a few photos . I have circled some symbols and numbers stamped into the I D plate on it . Would anyone know if they are military? 
Thanks in advance !!

Is the stamped mark that of the "Ministry of Supply" ?

It looks like an Inspector's stamp and having a crown on it, could well have been supplied Lend Lease to Britain.

That stamp looks like the PRINCE OF WALES feathers or to be correct his plumes

THE BUFFALO- SPRINGFIELD ROLLER COMPANY IS NOW PART OF BOMAG USA might be worth a e-mail with details to see if they have a archive that may  have records

I will drop them an email . Any reference sources available to track down the true origin of the symbols stamped into the I D badge ? 

Dave,

What appears to be a crown on the inspector's stamp, looks very much like a Danish crown symbol. It would be interesting if there are any factory records around that show where it was originally supplied to.
