Hi all. I was hoping someone out there might be able to shed some light on this sign. Obviously it's in bad shape, and I can't work out the words above and below 'lubrication'. It was found out in the bush near the town of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. Any help is most appreciated (I've attached a picture, I'm not totally sure it's gonna work)

Could it be " HUILE " ? I have seen on foreign signs before. I think the word means OIL. That would fit as you are in Australia. Ed.

I’ve had some light shed on it, it may say Mobilubricatio and the top word is genuine and the bottom service. The bottom bit is likely vacuum oil company pty ltd. if anyone out there has a picture of an original one I’d live to see it

Check your private messages. I have a photo for you, but for some reason it won't post to the forum.
