Response to True, and the irony is that we asked the French for their approval to use the same shape,


I find it interesting that the British asked permission from the French to use the roundel. Where is this documented? I believe that the MoD claims are based on the law of trademarks and I always thought that a trademark had to be sufficiently different from any other in order to avoid confusion. The number of times that I have been to airshows in France and in Britain when I have overheard visitors who have obviously confused the two markings... It has also happened in print. These are the oldest references which I have concerning national markings and they are taken from a book dated 1918.
