Wessex Markings

Its good to see this thread revived a few months ago and I would like to take the opportunity to do so again. I know that there is a large Wessex fraternity on here so maybe one of you could help me out.

I took this picture at Farnborough on 11 Sept 1988 and have wondererd ever since about the spelling of the word RESCUE. Is this just a man with a paint brush having a laugh ot is it just the result of employing someone who did not know any better. Its obviously very easy to change the C to a Q, likewise the F in RAF on the door seems to have been convrted to an E.

I wonder if there are any other examples of this sort of thing out there???

Some naughty people have been known to change th registration with bodge tape (Harry Blackers for the RN) to confuse the spotters at airshows.
