The Danish Army added its own markers.

Between 1962 and 1967, the Danish Army acquired 600 US-supplied, military versions of Dodge Power Wagon chassis which it fitted with mission-specific bodies. In addition to the standard cargo body as pictured here, variations include a command and control vehicle; ambulance; office van; electronic warfare vehicle; direction finder vehicle; radio-relay vehicle and a tele-type van. Each truck could be fitted with a winch.
