Hmmm - I had tried to respond to this thread:
But it would have been a 10-year old necropost so perhaps it is just as well if it didn't go through...
Question is basically - anything new in the last 10 years?
I found the original thread in a google search and I have to wonder how much further we are on the subject now.
This jeep was photographed in 1945, as part of the victory celebrations. Aside from being a very nice slat-grille jeep, it seems to me to be a shade of olive, all caveats considered.
More grist for the mill.
I have Don Dingwall's excellent CD on Canadian Vehicle Markings, and I have Barry Beldam's book on Formation Signs - now a few years out of date, as I was led to believe he updated it every few months. I keep current on Service Publications' Weapons of War series and just got a copy of Mark Tonner's book on Churchills. I also have Hodges and Taylor's BRITISH MILITARY MARKINGS, which I gather is older now, and of course Bouchery's books which I find interesting but not really all that good as far as references.
Who else do I need to read on the subject of Canadian vehicle markings and colours in the Second World War? I find some of (Steve Guthrie's?) armour references online and Flames of War puts up some miniatures wargaming stuff occasionally.
