    1954 Royal Review 47160049

    I bought this home on the weekend.



    The story goes it was de-mobbed and sold to a roo shooter, then to a bore driller and has spent time in the cape and gulf country.
    From Diana,s post in the other thread there are quite a few of these floating around so the identities may have been mixed up.
    It seems this was sent to Faulls in W.A. so has certainly been around.
    The bloke I got it from bought it to Brisbane from Mt Isa 15 or so years ago and it was purchased from a trucking company that had it sitting in their yard for a number of years. Unfortunately the name is now unknown.

    You won't find me on: faceplant; Scipe; Infragam; LumpedIn; ShapCnat or Twitting. I'm just not that interesting.

    You are right in that the 80" has 4 tabs, then from the 86" on they have 5 tabs.
