Mk VIII tank in original colour
Permalink   


OK, don't get too excited, as it's a model. Tucked away near the Mk VIII at Bov. Produced by the North British Locomotive Company & still in its original paint. However, the card describing it, does say that it may very well have been painted with the same paint that was used to paint the tanks that the NBLC produced.

I noticed the markings on the inside of the rear horns on the Mk VIII. "Lanarkshire Steel Co Ltd"

 That looks like a maker's mark - required on hot rolled steel products in the UK and many other countries. 

Lanarkshire Steel Co Ltd was a strip and bar rolling company that operated near Motherwell in Scotland. The plant closed

down in the 1960s (I think).

Regards,

Charlie
