Default Vehicle assembler signatures 194?

While cleaning up the engine splash trays some signatures became visible on a lend lease truck made in the USA and exported to Australia in the latter part of the war .

The top name appears to be #oofel Mackay
Next one down R . Burnett

Are any of these related to our MLU Merican friends ?

Default Signatures

What a fascinating find, Jim.

Can't remember where, but I recall a thread either on this or the earlier forum about signatures and messages from the ladies in the factories when packing parts for export too. I love hearing about that sort of stuff.
