    Product Description
    In order to facilitate pinpoint deliveries of high priority war goods, in 1944 the US instituted a coding system that was used to send goods that supported US forces deployed overseas. These were made complex due to the number of customers needing support, as well as the detail required for pinpoint shipments.

    Also, as vehicles had to proceed through ordnance processing checkpoints, data was added to the outside of the vehicle to tell the consumer (receiving unit) what and when a specific process had taken place. These included radio installation and checks, winterization, and other things which were necessary for safe operation of the vehicle. One of the most common was the stencil "CAUTION LEFT HAND DRIVE" and "NO SIGNALS" on vehicles in the United Kingdom to warn motorists that the vehicle would not behave like a British vehicle with right hand drive.

    Includes multiple late WWII shipping address codes for an M4 Sherman "Aunt Jemima" Mine Roller; T26E3 to Germany, Okinawa and Belgium; M4A3 76mm Sherman to Italy; M4A3E2 Jumbo Sherman to Bastogne; M4A3E8 Sherman to Germany and M36 90mm GMC to Austria. Other shipping address codes can be created by cutting and splicing codes to match your reference material. Sheet also includes a wide variety of U.S. WWII miscellaneous stenciled data and bonus hull stenciling for one Lend-Lease Sherman in Russian service. Includes instructions.
