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: firstname.lastname@example.org
