Colours and Markings of British Army Vehicles 1903-2003.
This book, Volume 1 in a series of four, describes and illustrates the
colours and markings used by the British army on its vehicles during
the 20th century. The three chapters cover the following topics:
Chapter 1 Colours and Sources
Chapter 2 Paint and Camouflage up to 1939
Chapter 3 Registrations, War Department numbers and Census Marks
The book is profusely illustrated with photos, colour profiles, and
detail drawings. It describes in detail the official paint schemes, the
variations often seen in practice, and the individual and unit markings
applied to tanks, armoured cars, lorries and smaller vehicles, and
towed guns. The series will prove invaluable for military enthusiasts
and modellers, making sense of a very confusing topic!
