Hi all, We just (this weekend) bought a Hillman Minx Saloon 1941 to restore and brought it from UK to Belgium. We would like it to be in original RAF-colors again ! While stripping the black paint (it was rebuild in 1948 into a cab) we found lettering on back doors. Still have to strip another part, but now I’m trying to do some research about RAF vehicle markings. Hard to find !!! The markings on the front right wing, was already made visible by the previous owners ... I have paint chips of the original RAF blue grey that was underneath the other paint layers, so the color is no problem. Right front wing marking: base color of wing is black H’24 with RAF roundel Type A diagonally below On the left back door: H + 2 or 3 digits we guess The right front door panel has been repaired earlier, so no more markings on it. The left front door panel, there is no marking either ... Quenstions: - What's the meaning of the number 24 and letter H’ ? Must been sqn numbers but wich one ... - What means black wings ?? Red wings are "Bombs Disposal" ... but black :wow: - Any help about vehicle markings would be fantastic !! Thanks a lot, Tina
