TP markings on Sankeys

Post by Bob Fell » Fri Oct 06, 2017 8:31 pm

Hi All,
Probably one for Clive,
But when where tyre pressure markings introduced?
My Sankey came into service in 1968, would it have had the TP markings stenciled over the wheel arches from new?
Any definitive advice welcome.
Regards
Bob

Bob glancing at Equipment Regulations 1959 Pamphlet No.9 Marking & Painting of Vehicles, Army Aircraft & Equipment WO Code No.12473

It looks like all vehicles (which includes trailers) should have the tyre pressure marked other than Scrapers (towed & motorized) & Rollers, rubber tyred.

I see in the 1971 amendments the exceptions now included Wheeled Amphibians.

The reason for the exceptions was because these equipments where subject different tyre pressures depending on the local circumstances.

Although I have occasionally seen an in-service vehicle additionally marked with "CC" tyre pressures for cross country use.

There are quite a few pictures on the web of 1A&SH in Crater 1967. Most of their Land Rovers have hand applied TP markings :
"T/P N18C/C14", which, due to the odd spacing and additional obliques, look a bit odd!

Best,
