Ok, count it out. Gråsten - a town in Denmark.

Paul, too much of credit to me.

I (virtually) wiped my eyeglasses and looked at those letters on the screen. Norway, Sweden, Danemark... My bet it's in Danish. But it's more bet than a fact.

There's a Dutch guy who knows everything about every Mack in Europe. But he's a seldom visitor on here. I'll try tossing a question.

 

After thinking incorrectly that people from that side of the world would know for sure what it all meant I did some googling and it is definitely from Denmark 

I guess I really have egg on my face now, I  guess it would be like someone thinking because I'm Australian I would know whats going on over the top of Western Australia, I have never been there lol

 

All good Vlad and Frenchy, there really is little known about European Mack's except they had them and I think in quite large numbers as I have collected hundreds of photos of different ones from Europe and the middle East

Im sure it will all become clear in the future

Jave just finished reading book 

Me, My Mack, Tehran and Back !

 

By AndybMacLean

 

A good read, if this type of thing intresets you then well worth a read

I'm fascinated by this era in Europe and the middle east, a era in transportation I will never understand as we never have any of the issues in Australia that these truck drivers had

So as Molly Meldrum would say "do your self a favor and go out and buy a copy" 

He would say this about vinyl records back in the day not books lol
