The repacement set produced by the regiment (I remember the regimental mong sitting there making up sets for all those missing from the docs prior to a docs inspection, stamping each letter and number individually):
Name & Initials
Oh and I have just found a 3rd set in the box, again, produced inside the battalion in the same order as above.
Remember it is not the order of the information that is important, but the information on them, especially if your body is not recovered for several decades.
OY!!! I thought you were supposed to hand your dog tags back at the end of Ops!!!!
and I thought I'd pulled a fast one by keeping mine! (No DOB to stay with the theme). But I am interested to know whether yours were all made by the same drunk, Albanian, welder that made mine!... honestly, the letters go up and down, left and right.
AND SORRY FOR THE PLUG: but ON MY SITE 7-62.com IM NOW SELLING SOLID SILVER 1MM THICK FULL SIZE AMERICAN STYLE TAGS WITH SILENCERS... the difference is though that you can have them as anti-jewellery - sandblasted - to look like sh1t/steel... and the idea is that you can get a St Christopher or Thor or St George or St Arnoldus engraved on them too, so that you can take them with you on Ops by adding the tag to the ones you've got. (St Arnoldus - patron saint of Brewers)
