Republished in conjunction with The Tank Museum.
By Dick Taylor
The second book in a series of four volumes devoted to the colours and markings applied during the 20th century to vehicles in the British Army, from motorcycles to tanks. This volume describes Paint and Camouflage 1939-1945 and Sub-Unit Markings and Call Sign Systems up to 2003. A detailed and authoritative work, this is essential reading for military enthusiasts and modellers. Containing photographs from the Tank Museum archives, it also includes original artwork showing camouflage schemes and markings.
Lots of fascinating detail here in a very well researched text. As so often with WW2 matters British, the answers to many questions are nuanced and require the expertise of someone like Dick Taylor working with primary sources. Very much looking forward to the reprint of Vol III, which I presume will have the whole mysterious business of Arm of Service and other tactical signs. I hope the museum offers all 4 volumes at a discounted batch buy
Excellent set of books, have wanted this volume for a while and its worth the wait.
Excellent reference book for all British military vehicle modellers.
