Martin MB in UK wrote:Original Quartermaster Corps Plate on my 42 Willys MB. Unfortunately, I cant find anyone who does repo QMC plates, only the Ordnance plates. What is the difference between the Ordnance and QMC, and especially the Make and Model part ???? Or put another way, why does mine say Quartermater and QMC on the plate, while 90% of others say Ordnance, ORD or 4x4 or something....
I guess that you haven't heard of Robert at Dataplates4U http://rdrnl.home.xs4all.nl/4UPicPlate14.JPG
This is like yours. The plates where changed from Quartermaster to Ordnance sometime between 15 to 21 December 1942, info from John Farley's book Standardised Wartime Jeep 2. Martin, I guess this is why you have seen so many of the Ordnance ones. It is nice that you still have your original plates
I didn't have any with my GPW, I now have a set made by Robert
Happy New Year,
