The low sided vehicles had 9" 6" or 4" L M S, according to the space available. The 6” stretched style L M S was used on some well wagons. Letters were spaced to suit the vehicle. Brake vans (except many pre-group types other than Midland) had the black & white patch high on the body side with the number in 5½ figures. Most other vehicles had 4" running numbers, sometimes with flat topped 3's. Brake vans (in bottom left hand corner) and a few other vehicles had the capacity marked 3” high, e.g, 20T. Tare was also marked 3” high, e.g. 10-8-1 sometimes preceded by TARE. There were few standard positions for insignia in the first period.
