Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Question for any spotters out there...

    help required following RTA.....anybody know where a vehicle bearing this reg veh reg may come from...

    CX 629 HA - rear plate, black num on yellow........

    intial research suggests italy, but cannot locate pre-fix CX???

    donation to arrse following correct lead!!!!
  2. Dear goon_bde,

    It's not a Wop number. My Italian brother-in-law (whose a bit of an anorak) and who lives in Calabria, has just faxed me all the Italian number-plate combinations since 1927 and there's no CX prefix among them.

    It also can't be Froggy, since they use a different system.

    The only approximation I can find is in Germany, where CUX designates Cuxhaven.

    But maybe other ARRSErs will have more luck.

  3. No. Not German - they're white with black letters. Possibly Northern Ireland?
  4. Cheers bugsy

    GCP are convinced that its italian...but i agree (from google) there is no CX prefix that i can find...

    ...i have seen another CX prefix (yesterday) but didn't get a look at the country of origin!!!

    arrsers...keep 'em peeled!
