Defender Bumperette Gromets / Holes

RRC2970 / RRC2971 / RRC5409 / RRC5410

Just removed a couple more of these and was wondering, what is the purpose of the two (2) metal holes, and/or metal gromets on the insides of the Defender bumperettes?

Tried my best Google-fu and was not able to find an answer.

Here is a photo:

As far as I am aware the holes are for the lower mounting bracket of the British Army's 8m and 12m telescopic aerials.

According to the Military User Handbook, they're for lifting and towing (recovery) -





Earlier Military 90/110s had a separate shackle mounting on the crossmember (inside the bumperette) for lifting/towing -

I just pulled out a set of the rear ones if anyone needs them.
If not will list them on eBay.
