My 2 gal. US tank is leaking beyond repair. I have the 5 gal. UK tank being painted now. The US tank has the MKII decal on the top...does the UK tank have the same?

In Roy Bacon's BSA Restorations on pg 175 there is a picture of a 67 Spitfire with the tank top decal. I would imagine that the 66 also had the tank top decal. I have a 68 and am researching the same thing. I would imagine if the US tank had the decal so did the UK tank.

The BSA Owners Club transfer list just says "Top pf petrol tank A65S MkII. It makes no distinction between the US and European tank.
