Default A 12 Cab!

Nice roof!

Wonder if that number on the side is original?

Looks like an interesting truck , possibly loaned to U.S. Army. Returned to Australian Army worn out.
Mike C might comment on what the notations mean.

What notations are you referring to, Ken?

This truck has been for sale for some years, with the price slowly falling. Seems to be getting close to good value now.

The numbers and letters in the left hand page are what I am referring to.
The USA I assume means US Army and the COD at the RH end of the line would usually mean cash on delivery, but if they gave the trucks back, in theory there would be no payment. I put my glasses on and I see there is possibly a date 30.03.42 .
I thought the price would be okay for a spares truck. Plus another $600.00 to get it to my place.

The other thing I just noticed was that there are UK order 907 and UK order 889 trucks and when you get over to ARN 51720 my truck, I see that they mix the 2 orders together.

ARN 51567 a USA truck and 2/107 AGT company veteran wasn't sold off until 16/5/56.

Better pictures on his MLU postings. Nice looking truck. Looks very complete by Blitz standards.
My boss says finish one before I even consider another- darn!

Ken,

COD = Central Ordnance Depot, ie issued from Bandiana.

A 'G52' is an issue form, and the form number for this issue was 178, issued on 30 March 1942.

A copy of the form would have wend its way through to the Reverse Lend Lease people for adding the financial amount to the RLL account, and later, once the vehicle was returned, another form would have, in theory, wend its way to the RLL account's people to credit the reduced/used value to the other side of the account ledger.

Mike

Thanks Mike C, I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge, and confirming the truck went to Reverse Lend Lease.
Your explanation has added another dimension to the old trucks life, that is having waited at Bandiana some time in early 1942 for assignment to a unit, in this case the U.S. Army.
It would be nice to have it in the collection for that reason alone, I hope it hasn't survived 78 years to end up at the scrap metal yard.
Ken

No connection to the vendor, but there's a Cab 12 roof in Victoria:
