I think this is one of those things like why some countries carry the
registration letters under and/or above the wings.  The U.S. doesn't
require it, not do we require the "CUT HERE" markings.  Many (most) USAF
transport types carry them however.  I've got photos of Gulf Air L-1011s
going back to the mid-1970s and they've always carried them, as have the
BOAC 747s I have photos of from 1971.

Cheers,
