mpcv parade MPCV and JWH

A little detail for the MPCV in the way of markings. C Coy emblem on side was a green skull and crossbones on all vehicles. Jaws teeth on. C/S 39 on turret for sunray C Coy

All other vehicles had 1Pl – 31, 31A, 31B, 31C then 2 Pl – 32, 32A, 32B, 32C, then 3Pl – 33, 33A, 33B, 33C.

That makes up the 13 MPCVs which C Coy had in support of the Eland 90 armored cars during the Entumbane operations.

The ZNA MPCVs went on to operate in Mozambique, DCR and Somalia with the peace keeping forces. So you could have this vehicle in white with UN markings or would they have been other markings? Will try and find out.
