Does the Australian Military Police use the Land Rover Perentie? If so, what markings are present on these vehicles?

Paul,

Thanks for that... I've already come across that photo. I'm aware that the Australian military use various configurations of the Land Rover Perentie, but wasn't sure whether they were used by their Military Police.

The LR 110 was used extensively by the Meatheads but I believe it has or is in the process of being replaced by the G Wagons and other vehicles. Certainly from the late 80's to about 2015 the 110.
