I had  no idea as  to how the vehicle registration system worked in the UK MOD.

Im not convinced the MOD understands it either. :blink: :blink:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

If that isn't a Stolly built under licence, I don't know what is. It's pretty much identical.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Yes, of course it was. Or better, it was a Stalwart renamed Aurochs in the attempt to sell them to the french army. In that case, Berliet would have built them under licence.

Reading things backwards, or at least from right to left, can help with lots of official documents  ;D

Going from the bottom upwards works sometimes too.

When we were quoting for the Electric Catapults on the QE Class carriers, before they decided not to have them, the spec got to page 20 or so before the word 'Ship' or 'vessel' occurred!  :o

..... and I have just received this little gem of info from Mossie/Simon.

By the way, one thing I found when I built (well, nearly) the BW Models kit is that the RAF had at least two Stollies (they did a boxing) as a Reef Rescue Unit at RAF Gan.  One had a dayglo orange stripe, the other a yellow cab.  Guess what?  They retained their Army reg's.  :thumbsup:  One in the eye to the JMN!

Maybe the kits retained army numbers but the RAF Fire Service Stollie on Gan with orange stripe had an RAF number with AG in the centre not an army one.

That '17' pink one's a Mk 1 too, pretty unusual on two levels.
