Uncovered regimental markings

Hi all, stripping the civilian paint from my tank, which flakes off largely.
I uncovered the remains of a regiment / formation insignia.
Which appeared to be a light blue with white numbers. Too far gone to be legible.

Does anybody have an illustration or any other image showing a list of known markings, please?

Hi Steve, there is a book by Hodges & Taylor that goes into the subject in some detail and lists many hundreds of vehicle markings, its not been in print for a while so it can be expensive, here are some on abebooks.

If you can give us a photo of what you have we can try to look it up for you.

Re: Uncovered regimental markings

Hi, that seems to be the blue. There is too little of it left to see any numbers.
I’m not sure how to upload a photo to show you.
