    Product Description

    Type: dry transfers

    Prior to the invasion of France, all vehicles to be shipped by tactical transport vessels were prominently marked with basic vehicle data -- length, width, height, weight and weight -- to permit British loadmasters to get the vehicles into the ships and maintain the correct centers of balance and buoyancy. These markings were applied with stencils to each side of a vehicle where they would be easy for the port handlers to find, record, and compute the data. Markings were applied in either white or yellow paint, and in some cases to a black surround. The stencils were either 3/4" in the case of small vehicles or 1 1/2" in the case of large ones. Approximately 1/2" was used between the lines of data to separate items. While similar to the US codes, these were provided in feet and inches and British long tons (2,240 pounds) and hundredweight (112 pounds each). Both Commonwealth and US vehicles could be found with these markings. They could be found with both lettering and standard signs for the numbers.
