British Tank Interiors WW2



I was informed (and still believe) some time ago that British built tank interiors - Cromwell/Churchill etc. were a silver/aluminuium colour.


Someone else on another forum says it can be white too, does anyone know for sure?

Originally silver but a shortage of the aluminium pigments, for it was a special paint with high metal content, led to using white for a short time before returning to silver.


There seems to be some uncertainty as to when the changes took place and how widespread it was but from my observations of original vehicles that have not been painted post war, I would think 1941-1942 may be white and other periods silver.


Certainly silver had come back by 1944.
