This page is dedicated to colours and markings on artillery shells and mortars. Mainly British WW2 but a couple of WW1 and American ones may have crept in!
As with my previous blogs about identification, trawling the net is all well and good, but having a resource all on one page is far better. With that in mind, I’ve put all the diagrams I have acquired over the years onto this page. I’ve tried to keep the file size as big as possible so they can be easily read, as some of them have rather small writing.
As I find more diagrams I’ll post them to this page, so please come back whenever you need to. Just because the diagram you were looking for wasn’t there first time you looked, doesn’t mean it won’t always be there. Also, if you’re looking for something specific that isn’t covered, please use the contact page and I’ll see what I can do to help.
On to the mortars……….
