Finally back in print, republished in conjunction with The Tank Museum.
Colours and Markings of British Army Vehicles 1903-2003 - Volume 1. The series will prove invaluable for military enthusiasts and modelers, making sense of a very confusing topic! Volumes 2 - 4 following soon.
By Dick Taylor
This book 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, and Chapter 3 Registrations, War Department numbers and Census Marks. The book is filled throughout with photos, colour profiles, and meticulous 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. Dick Taylor is a serving British Army officer who has been deployed in many areas of the world. Since being commissioned in 2000, he has specialized in tank gunnery instruction, Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear operations, Psychological Operations, and lately, defence exporting. He has a First Class degree in History, and is currently working towards a Master's degree at Dundee University. He is married with two sons and lives in Blandford, Dorset.
These books are first rate. They are an essential reference for the military modeller or wargamer.
Hope that volumes 3 & 4 are republished soon.
