After taking a copy of the images and enlarging, it does seem to be a signature for "P Reynolds" but I cannot make out the letters below the end of the signature. Might be "OSWA"??

However there is a web page for: http://www.reynoldsglass.com/ Nothing in it except a pic and contact details but could be worth sending an email especially as (according to a Studio web page) Mr Reynolds seems to have moved around in the recent past.

I'm pretty sure it says "P Reynolds 08 WA" for the year 2008 and Western Australia. See the two examples here, for which I showed the actual items in another thread and where the year is 2007.

Yes, your interpretation is correct, although it looks to me more like an 8 than a 6. On the other hand, I've had to enlarge your photo to be able to read it at all, where you have the advantage of seeing the original without pixellated distortion.
