Signwriter's white of the 1940s was quite an off-white colour when compared with the brilliant whites that we see today. Would you describe the cross as a Saltire ?
The only wartime example that I can think of though is 52nd (Lowland) Division who used a blue shield background.
A photo might help.
hi im afraid i have no pictures,i lost the pictures from my phone, but it looks like a saltire the background was just rust, so no other colour, the only paint was on the back of the oil tank, which is brown, if you can advise where i can research military emblems i will be most gratefull, thanks pete
I know of no single source, Pete. The best book that I have is by Howard Cole. It relates primarily to uniforms, but the signs were generally similar. Maybe they're available on library loan ?
It may though be a post-war sign. I don't have this second book :-
