Mine's in the spreadsheet, but not on the Merlin archive. Does that mean anything, or is it just too old to be in the archive?

Oddly, ours is in the archive but the scan of the record card doesn't quite tally and the colour (NATO Green IRR) is in the spreadsheet but not listed / secret in the website.

Quite possible it was one of the 110's used by the mountain rescue teams.

 

51X CTT is a cadet training team in scotland.

I know my truck was Army fire service but not sure what other services. Can anyone shed some light on it from the list or are they all fire services? 

Good info that....
