Synopsis 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!
