Overview
-

This book, Volume 2 in a series of four, describes and illustrates the colors and markings used by the British army on its vehicles during the 20th century. The major sections in this volume cover the following topics:

PAINT AND CAMOUFLAGE 1939 – 1945. Detailed description of the paints used, and the color schemes applied to wartime vehicles in all theaters.
SUB-UNIT MARKINGS AND CALLSIGN SYSTEMS. A comprehensive guide to this complex topic, covering the whole period up to 2003

The book is illustrated with photos, color profiles, and detailed drawings. It describes in detail the official paint schemes, the variations often seen in the field, and the individual and unit markings applied to tanks, armored cars, lorries and smaller vehicles, and towed guns. As with all the volumes in this series, invaluable information for military enthusiasts and modelers, making sense of a complicated topic.
