I made a mistake on the registration number which I corrected

A big thank you to Mike from forum HMVFwho pointed out my mistake here is his original message from the time

Pretty difficult to read, but it has to be a six digit number starting with 14, so 14XXXX. Note the GMC further along the line has what appears to be a 5 digit number, but the sixth number is just partly visible. The fourth digit on the

**jeep**appears to be a β 7β, so 14X7XX.

If the third digit is a β2β, the possibilities are: 142758 to 142799 inclusive.

The third digit cannot be a β3β, as the only jeeps in that series are 143000 to 143085, ie none with a β7β fourth digit.

The third digit cannot be a β5β , as there are none with a β7β fourth digit.

The third digit cannot be a β6β, as there are no possibles with a β7β as the fourth digit.

The third digit cannot be an β8β as all the 148xxx series are trailers.

The third digit could be a β9β. If so, the possibles are:

149701

149708

149709

149729

149730

149734

149762

149763

149793

149794

The above are the only possibilities for the registration number of the **jeep** in the image.

A little bit of detective work based on the images shows that 122 **Mobile** **Cinema** worked with 6th Infantry Division at Wewak, New Guinea in November 1945. 122 Aust Mob **Cinema** was one of a group of **mobile** cinemas formed at wars end to entertain the troops after hostilities ceased. We know that the images were taken while operating with 6th Infantry Division because the unit sign on the GMC CCKW353 is 2-4 over 91, which is the unit sign of 2/4th Aust General Transport Platoon, which was part of the 6th Division.

Hope that all helps to provide a better βpictureβ of what your model represents.
