I've added Commonwealth infantry division insignia. Not a complete set - I'm afraid I'm being rather neglectful of the CBI/Pacific/Far East theatre, but I will get around to it eventually.

Hi

This page has come along, I can see some good work ha been done,

I am trying to identify these markings,

there is a white diagonal running from lower left to top right.

I have not seen this except for a REME markings earlier in the post.

this marking appear on Austin K2Y ambulances in c1941 but where?

Middle or Far east.

the 7 is a positive the / runs over a 0 so looks 7/1 but is 7/0.

and a standard layout.for a MAC 502 ambulance.

which I now know that the white bar \ is for HQ unit

I am warming to the mark being 27/2 or 27/12.

found this what does it mean?
