PostSubject: Colour of general service wagon during the 1879 Invasion   Colour of general service wagon during the 1879 Invasion EmptySun Mar 13, 2011 3:52 pm


Gentlemen

what would have been the colour scheme in use by the british army in 1879 for the painting of goverment property. Most notably the general service wagon, artillery Limbers and Guns. I fear I may have made a mistake with the colours, I have gone with the ww1 era green for the general service wagon but I have a sneeky suspition that blue gray was still in use. scratch

can anyone help ?

Hi Teld.
A friend has informed me the that the wagons and gun carriages were indeed still painted grey . But the army hired a lot
of privately owned wagons to make up the shortfall and they were mainly painted green with red wheels ! .
Hope this has been of some help .

cheers 90th . Idea
