Introduction of horn Stripes
Permalink   


Somewhere before on this now vast database I saw a reference to the date of introduction of the W-R-W horn and cab roof stripes, but can't find it.

Can anyone point me in the general direction?

Would need to look to find a source, but it was definitely summer 1918, either June or July.

Thanks TCT,

That's close enough.

I think it was April 1918, off the top of my head.

†Hi

I did put some information on the development of markings previously on tank to air and air to tank communications thread.† The following letter (from TNA) has reference to the markings.† Notice March 1918 date.

Hi

Further to my previous post, I have attached a letter from GHQ (from TNA) dated 5th May 1918 reference the tank markings.† With this letter were drawings of the MK.IV, V and Whippet, showing how markings had been applied.

Thanks Mike,
I wasn't sure if the top markings came after the horn markings rather than at the same time.
A fabulous modelling 2014 to you and all the other members.
