I recently read Patrick Dalzel-Jobís ĎArctic Snow to Dust of Normandy: the extraordinary wartime exploits of a naval special agentí and the photographs of 30th Assault Unit Jeeps, Humber scout cars and C-15TA armoured 15cwt trucks (and the mention of a Staghound) suggest a good 1/76 modelling project.
Robert Lockie spotted scenes of RN C-15TAs on British Pathe film 1994.09 and these clearly belong to 30 AU too.
The Humbers are in overall SCC 15 (presumably) with the circled white star on the glacis (if scout cars have a glacis) and an RN tac sign on the left mudguard. However, itís not clear how the RN tac sign is configured. Some of the photos seem to show the RN painted directly onto the mudguard, others appear to show the usual rectangular sign with RN stencilled on it. If the latter is correct, what colour would the sign be (I assume the RN is white)?
One of the Pathe stills shows a formation(?) sign on the right rear of a C-15TA. It isnít very clear but may be a two colour sign. Could it be a Royal Marines formation sign?
There is also the number 30 on the rear of the C-15TA and that seems to be yellow.
Any tips the correct markings for 30 AU vehicles would be most welcome.
