  1. I've updated the overview page to include Royal Artillery markings, and a few other details. I plan eventually to do a full page specifically for Royal Artillery markings, as I'm sure they could fill a whole book on their own! https://tank-markings.blogspot.com/p/british-tank-markings-overview.html
  2. Looks like a Dorchester ACV. I believe the only other model of ACV was the Guy Lizard, and these were somewhat smaller.
  3. Indeed. You're looking at £200 for Volume 3 of Warpaint now. It's ridiculous. I'm amazed Osprey haven't done a series on vehicle markings. It's surely a popular enough subject.
  4. Yep, already got them both, plus their respective Part 1s, and a few others! Thanks for the suggestions anyway
  5. There's a four volume epic by Dick Taylor that covers 1903-2003, but naturally it's out of print. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Warpaint-Markings-Vehicles-1903-2003-Publications/dp/8389450631
  6. Oh wow, thanks! PM and donation on the way!
  7. A very useful book indeed. I've been trying to track down a copy for ages, but I can't quite run to the £75 plus being asked on eBay and Amazon! 😨 I'm hoping I'll be able to find a copy in a library somewhere when (if?) they reopen...
  8. Thanks Barry - that was actually one of the sources I used to begin with! Armoured divisions in Normandy all followed the same pattern of Arm of Service flashes, at least in theory. It's when you get to the independent armoured brigades that it starts to get complicated.
  9. Just the Second World War for now as that's where my primary interest lies. The overview page mainly focuses on tanks at the moment, though the formation badges and the Arm of Service flashes in the division summary diagrams obviously apply to other vehicles as well. I'm going to add a section about Royal Artillery markings, and flesh out the section on bridge ratings.
  10. https://tank-markings.blogspot.com/ For the past few weeks I've been working on a guide to British Tank and vehicle markings - particular the arcane system of colours and numbers used for Arm of Service markings. With help from people on other forums and social media I've been able to track down enough sources to come up with a vaguely coherent overview of the systems used throughout the war. Apologies if this breaks any rules about shameless self promotion, but I'm hoping the usefulness of the resource outweighs any potential distaste!
