Many of the Bases has vehicles, from Cargo Trucks, Cranes, Torpedo Haulers, and Jeeps. On most front bumpers of the Jeeps and Trucks would be serial numbers and Letters. Although I have no clue what they stood for, would the ones assigned to the PT BOAT BASES have US NAVY written on them anywhere to signify a Navy Vehicle. I ask because there will be a Jeep and a Cargo Truck in my new project. Although I have shots of these type vehicles, I do not have anything close up to show if any US NAVY name was stamped. Anyone who might know, please let me know here...................

Frank,

The pictures I have of MTBSTC with vehicles (trucks and such) have either US NAVY or USN on the doors and on the rear and sometimes they have both USN and US NAVY. There is also a serial number that is usually under thr USN or US NAVY.

Ahoy there Frank.

Is this of any help?



Here's a link to an old discussion of colours of U.S.N. JEEPs. It seems they have the same problem arriving at a consensus as to the proper colour used as PT boat modellers have.
