History of a 60's Land Rover in 3 Div poss recce?

#1
Hello,
I have an old military short wheel base FFR Land Rover , built in 62 and demobed in 71, I am restoring it but can't find the history can any one help?
I have found a 3 Div badge on the front wing, a black '9' on the rear diff which was painted white and the hindges which suport the windscreen have been cut when in service, the only thing I can think why is for an imporovised GPMG mount. It also has the spring hangers painted red prob for lashing down to be taken out the country on a ship, could it have been a recce vehicle in Aden or somewhere else?
Sorry can't load photos up but I do have them on flickr if you type in FFR 24 volt rover 8.
Thanks for any help in advance, Dave

No idea on your vehicle, but just thought I'd mention that most military vehicles have their rear diff painted white, it gives the convoy light something to shine on.
