Some were not painted on. The TTL operated out of Glugor MCU (Penang) during my tour had cantankerous cartridge start engines and was called "soddin thing" frequently :lol:

Alex Keith sent me this of RTTL 2748 at RAF Gan in 1960 this one saved the lives of 15 of us on March 1st 1960 when the Hastings [TG579] we were travelling in 'landed' in the sea 1.5nm in a raging tropical storm short of the runway to the east of Gan and south of Wilingili, I was oicked out of the water by a boathook onto the scramble nets by one of the MCU crew for whom I will be forever grateful [the crew were picked up by the Pinnace 1374 currently at

the RAF Museum at Hendon]
