There are two plates on the vehicle, the chassis plate and a small plate on the dashboard. Both of these plates give the Jeeps post war registration (93 YH 19). Through this number I was able to obtain the key card. Furthermore the dashboard plate gave the date of the rebuild and name of the workshop company that did the rebuild. In 1952, 23rd Heavy WKSP COY R.E.M.E. was, I believe, stationed at the town of Wetter in Germany either in the Demag factory or the Harkort-Eicken Steel Works (this maybe one and the same place).
The Key Card provided the wartime registration (M 5845301). It also shows “S/O allies”. Information kindly provided by Svein Olav Alstad shows it to have been one of 178 jeeps that went from B.A.O.R. to the Norwegian Tysklandsbrigaden in 1953. The British Unit that gave the cars to the Norwegian military was 5th Yorkshire division and the Norwegian military was wearing "Y" on uniforms and cars etc.
Supply contract number SM2275.
