Nice review Alan, thanks. Warpaint is definitely a series of books well worth getting.

The one thing missing (probably in editing) is the link to the Vehicle Names table though - so here it is.

Been waiting a couple of months fpr volume 4. If it's half as good and indeed as useful as the first three I will have to add it to my library.

This is not correct.
In the book there is a reference to the MMP website! Pls., do have a look at page 64.

Very informative and easy going reading, with a lot of photographs to make a very detailed model of almost any vehicle ever in UK service world wide.
Complements to Mr. Dick Taylor for his enormous amount of careful work.
However, on page 26 there is an incorrect statement about the Dutch ( not Belgian, as written) "Prinses Irene" brigade. The use of a small Belgian air force roundel was not used by the Dutch. They used a dark roundel with a left facing orange lion.
But the text covers a Belgian unit which did use this roundel.
Any one amongst you who knows which unit is meant?

Thanks in advance,

Paul
