From http://www.lexikon-der-wehrmacht.de/wbb ... 9aec199cf5
Aktion TR
Die " Aktion TR " ( auch "Tr" für Transport ) wurde mit Vfg. v. 5. 3. 1941 m. W. v. 1. 4. 1941 ( OKW 1 k 35 AHA/Ag/E (Va) Nr. 450/41 geh. ) - für Transportaufgaben des Heeres und der Luftwaffe im Osten - aufgestellt und in geschloßenen Transportkolonnen eingesetzt. Die Fahrzeuge kamen aus der Wirtschaft .
Die Angehörigen waren Freiwillige und zählten, obwohl sie nicht Soldaten waren, zu den Wehrmachtsangehörigen.
Als Uniformierung trugen sie Heeresuniformen ohne alle Abzeichen und ohne Schulterklappen und die Heeresfeldmütze mit Hoheitsabzeichen und Kokarde und zusätzlich eine Armbinde ( Deutschen Wehrmacht ).
Mit Verfügung v. 4. 12. 1941 ( HM 41, Nr. 1214 ) wurde das Tragen des Hoheitsabzeichen ( Heer ) an der linken Brustseite der Feldbluse oberhalb der Ordenspange genehmigt.
Who had a GI prefix in the number plate; unusual capital I for a plate?

Thanks, I need to read books more carefully ;)

As for GI plates - were assigned to Generalinspekteur für das deutsche Straßenwesen

If I understood correctly these plates were issued from 1941. Probably to 1942 only because later Generalinspekteur für das deutsche Straßenwesen became part of OT.

A fairly extensive and complex conversion on a Bedford MW. I think this is a gun-tractor, with ready ammunition boxes on the bed sides, and hinged glass side windows plus a one-piece windscreen. I had not seen this exact conversion before.
