Default Lend Lease Decal

Yesterday a couple of collectors came for a perusal of the junk in my yard. While crawling around one of the Dodge APT's he noticed the decal. I hadn't seen it before but I guess after our extremely hot summer some of the paint has finally given up its hold and flaked off.

If you clean it off you can tell us what it says.

The Cyrillic Alphabet was named for St. Cyril, although there is some dispute as to whether this is the alphabet he invented or not. Cyril was a Greek monk who, with Methodius, brought written language to Christian converts in the mid-9th century (c.860) in what is now Russia. The Cyrillic alphabet is closely based on the Greek alphabet, with about a dozen additional letters invented to represent Slavic sounds not found in Greek.
In Russia, Cyrillic was first written in the early Middle Ages in clear-cut, legible ustav (large letters). Later a succession of cursive forms developed. In the early eighteenth century, under Peter the Great, the forms of letters were simplified and regularized, with some appropriate only to Greek being removed. Further unnecessary letters were expunged in 1918, leaving the alphabet as it is today—still in use in many Slavic Orthodox countries.

I always thought those decals just said Canada. It should be Canada in Russian, Chinese and English

The decal was applied to any Canadian produced product that was shipped to Allies and was the suggestion of the Mutual Aid Board. They were designed and produced for the Canadian Manufacturer's Association. These will be found on Inglis pistols, Stens, Brens, Wireless sets and more. They came in a number of sizes and media (paper, decals, and textiles.) Many brand new CMPs will sport the small (2-inch) decal on the doors.
I have a number of these, in a variety of sizes, in my collection.

Yes Peter, I have some originals. I can't believe you can remeber something that I showed you years ago, while I can't remeber what I had for lunch. This is one I lent to Brian Asbury years ago, and he was kind enough to return it in a frame.
I wonder if he remembers that?
Cheers,
Barry
