You will probably find the original army number for your vehicle here.

Hi Lang,
cheers for the info, its a little inaccurate, as the list has 31 ambulances rather than 32,
and the numbers are a bit wonky, 7's instead of y"s, some back to front in part.
But all info is good.
unfortunately of the 70 Austin K2Y's(1941), that came to Australia(1942), ours is not one on the list.
it was said at the time they came from Malaysia,likely from the M.E. Australian Field Ambulance.
half to NSW and half to Queensland. this is about how it worked out, the ones in Queensland are not recorded,or in Victoria,
See AWM Film FO 1986 Australian wounded land in Brisbane, for the unrecorded Ambulances with the Altered British WD no's ( vehicles without Australian Army numbers are not allowed into Australian Army camps. often ignored) although to be fair they were recorded as Australian Army numbers, i think this was meant to be temporary, before getting a shorter AMF number.(ARN)
