Under the paint.......

Recommended Posts

These two pictures taken in 1986(ish) show markings under the paint of our Jeep. The lot number is from 1947 when the last owner bought it at auction in Scotland ,but can anyone tell me why it would have the word "UTILITIES" under the screen? I was informed when they bought it , it never came with a back seat. Maybe it was used for just carrying stuff round the base where it was stationed ....... any ideas?:coffee:

Might it have had some civillian life? Utitlities is the normally the US term for gas , electric, water services.

Some bases/units had their own utilities section working under the QM section to maintain and repair infrastructure and install and upkeep utilities like power and drainage and such like, maybe this was the camp run around hence no back seat for carrying tools and eqpt
