Brigadier General Mildred Hedberg, US Army Retired, owned Jeeps she used for Hunting and Fishing. I serviced one of them. B/Gen Hedberg was one of the first US Army Generals.

Ok, you cannot be always historical correct...

Focussing past two years to get my 1944 MB up and running again and it have licensed to be on the road again I needed to decide what to do with hoodnumbers, unit indetification, data plates etc etc.


For most of it I followed experts opinions on what would be close to correct frame number and hood number, only having an MB engine number and tub number.

Now the historical incorrectness, which I really could not resist doing:

I took 48 PAINFBAT C-2...., Royal Dutch Army, The Netherlands

Stands for 48th armored infantry battalion, Charlie company Second platoon.

It had two platoon commanders with the same family name, me and my father. One at the beginning of the cold war, he had a life time career as an officer, and me, his son, at the end of the cold war....

I hope this is incorrectness will be forgiven.
