Hello and Welcome

Welcome to the new home of UK Tank Markings.

The purpose of this site is to describe and explain the markings worn by British and Commonwealth tanks and other military vehicles during the Second World War.

While there are many books on the subject, many of them are long out of print and very hard to find, and so by presenting information in a digital format online, I hope to make it accessible to everyone. I have striven to make my diagrams as readable and as user-friendly as possible, in the hope that they’ll prove useful to the wargamer, the model-maker, and the amateur historian alike.

In the course of the extensive research I’ve undertaken to produce this site I have attempted to use reputable published reference material as much as possible, and I’m eternally grateful for the help and advice I’ve received from the wargaming, modelling and wider military history community.

I have occasionally had to use my own judgement reconcile conflicting information from different sources, so some inaccuracies may remain. References and sources are given on individual pages as well as on the Bibliography page.

Please use the menus to navigate around the site, and feel free to leave comments, corrections, and feedback using the comments sections on individual pages, or via email at: admin@uk-tank-markings.co.uk

There will be regular updates, so please bookmark this page and consider subscribing below for email updates.

  1. I strongly believe that your work here is worth a big thumbs up and appreciation.
    I for one love what you did, it helps me in regards to modeling of British tanks and soft skins in WW2.
    As my late father had taken part in that conflict, serving with the 8th Army in Italy that theatre is of particular interest for me.
    Would love seeing that this theatre also been covered the same as NW European theatre.
    Some notable divisions and brigades were in Italy, part of the 8th Army.

  2. So very happy to see the site go from strength to strength, I even bought a few stickers from the shop.


  3. Hello,
    Thank you for the work you do on this interesting subject. I am currently researching on the dummy tank divisions, and all divisions, invented during the North African Campaign. Do you have any information regarding their emblems or badge signs?
    Thank you
