Thanks very much! Mine looks just the same except lot 9f. Lacquered steel case so difficult to get the white stuff in a shallow impression. Well done.

Not to forget that these are the commercial logos of the manufacturer as for exports (to non-brothers in arms) they were not allowed to use military codes!
