Military color codes

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I bought last year in Norway a Land Rover 109 1975 Series 3 ex-military vehicle.

Have someone from you the RAL codes for the colours used for the camouflage of this cars ?

Or  a link where i can find this information ?

Thank you in advance

Richard

I know that it was common practice in the British Armed forces to simply give a squaddie a bucket of "green" paint, and a brush and let them paint.  

NO doubt the Norwegians were more methodological, so perhaps  contacting their military archives may be a better approach?

Oddly enough the colours used by the British are all British standard colours. Things like bronze green, NATO green, Matt stone, fire engine red.

Possibly, if the vehicles were painted before leaving the factory, at least one of them could be a BS colour.

It is entirely possible that there is/was a standard NATO range of colours.
