Bumper Number/Letter Sequance

Post by George in NH » Fri Jul 12, 2019 6:57 am

Having a friend who was the CO of A company, 1st Bn, 7th Rgt, 3rd Bde, 1st Air Cavalary, early 1971, I wish to mark my motor pool restoration of
my M151A1 (5-67) in his honor. Is the correct sequence 1CAV 7RGT 1BN A 06? Looking at Rick Larsen's website he states that hood letters/numbers can be either 2 inch or 3 inch. Is one more correct for early 1971? I have been chasing period pics on the net but so far nothing usable. TIA

I would say:
1CAV 1-7CR * A-6

My 2 cents. Your mileage may vary.
