Marking 6th Navy Beach battalion

Post by DirkvandenBol » Mon May 13, 2019 8:00 am

Hi guys,

A buddy of mine is searching for information or pictures regarding the following:

I can’t seem to find the answer, so if anyone here knows..
I know NBB had several jeeps in their battalion. Question is, how were they marked? USN, NAVY, NBB, something else?
I’ve looked through pictures but don’t see any markings.

He would like to mark his Willys with the 6th NBB instead of the many 101AB 506/E jeeps that will be driving in Normandy this June.

Hopefully someone can help us out.

With kind regards,
Dirk van den Bol
