This book, the long-awaited final volume in the series, further describes and illustrates post-WW2 British armoured camouflage and markings as follows:
1) GROUND AND AIR RECOGNITION SYSTEMS;
2) VEHICLE NAMES
3) MISCELLANEOUS MARKINGS
The book is profusely illustrated with photographs, colour profiles, and detailed 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 is invaluable for military enthusiasts and modellers, making sense of a very confusing topic!
British Army vehicle names.
The following tables list the known individual names given to vehicles in the British Army from 1900 onwards. Where known the vehicle type, unit, and time period is included, as well as any relevant additional information. Also included in the WWII section are Australian, Belgian, Canadian, Czech, Dutch, Indian, New Zealand and Polish (etc) names seen on vehicles issued from British stock. This information will be updated and corrected as more information becomes available, and to that end we welcome comments, corrections and suggestions from all!
