Hi could anybody tell me what shade of red the 18pdr Incendiary shell would be as i want to paint one and what type of markings and coloured bands they had,
Many thanks
The only colour references I have are from a 1940 dated 18 PR manual.

Not what you wanted but its the best i've got. :tinysmile_fatgrin_t
