11 June 2010 - No, I am not dead...yet. While away I managed to write (with my good friend Steve Guthrie) a two volume set of books on the Cam and Markings of WW2 Canadian vehicles (available at http://stores.ebay.com/Aberdeen-Bookstore). Additionally my Serious Modeller's Guides and Stowage books are now obtainable at: www.aviationbookcentre.com. Sales will determine if there is going to be any further volumes. I have also completed a hockey-sock full of new CVM and NCVM articles. I am having trouble getting them to load onto the site but they will be there soon.
01 October 2008 - Recent changes have been vast although most modellers will not notice. I have re-done all the Canadian ORBATs and amended the title to 'Commonwealth' ORBATs as, thanks to Peter Brown and has brilliant research, I now have a whole whack of very neat British ORBATs as well. There are several from the late, mid and even early 1930s that are not to be missed. All new ORBATs have a blue edge on their name tags as opposed to the old red ones on Canadian. I thank Peter on your behalf (both of you) for sharing his research with me, he is a friend indeed. So if you like the establishment side of modelling and really do want to know how many carriers were included in a tank brigade headquarters give the ORBAT site a look. Hope you enjoy, now back to more markings stuff. Oh yes, before I forget, there is going to be a new publication from Poland this month on Canadian colours and markings of WW2 written by Steve Guthrie and yours truly...find it and read it and maybe we'll do some more...
10 August 2008 - Well, I have spent the last few months working with Soviet ORBATs. I have updated what was there and added to several years as well as adding a new set for 1989. Now that that is done I am heading for some new Canadian and British WW2 ORBATs as well as some rarer ones from between the wars. For those of you who see no value in ORBATs, just wasted time I guess, but for me fun, fun, fun! I will be adding to the photo files shortly as well. Oh yes, while I think of it, please do not write to ask if I still sell decals or books, I do not, I merely did the research and art work for the decals and wrote the books, I do not sell any of them. But I might soon, maybe.
9 May 2008 - In answer to many requests (only 1) the CVM articles changed on 18 April are: 24-26-31-33-41-46 and 48.
19 April 2008 - It is much better to have your errors on the Staghound AA drawings pointed out by a friend than by an enemy who would gloat at your stupidity. Thank you Peter, I have made the corrections. By the way, without Peter Brown's help with the British subjects this would be a much smaller and plainer web site. Thank you again Peter.
18 April 2008 - I have added two new articles to the CVM series covering reconnaissance vehicles, as well as updating seven other articles. Whilst browsing for interesting photos I discovered one of a Canadian Staghound Mk.III...the one with the 75mm main gun in the Crusader turret. Thinking it one of a kind I asked Peter Brown about serial numbers for British Mk.IIIs. Imagine my surprise when he sent me shots of two more Mk.IIIs. So then I decided to add the anti-aircraft variant as well and focus on recce vehicles. By the by a few words on words: in the Canadian Army we called reconnaissance, recce, camouflage, cam and intelligence, int. Not recon, cammo and intel. So if you see my abreviations they are not just mine but belong to the army I served. Oh yes, and the colour khaki is pronounced 'karkey' not 'kakky'. Just for the record! Hopefully I will be able to add more pages to the CVM files but the photos are getting few. Ah well, I shall endeavour to persevere.
03 February 2008 - This time around I have only added a few pages to the NCVM pages, covering Australian Centurions in Viet Nam. This has not been an easy job as photos don't exactly grow on trees. However with the help of the internet and Col Filtness at www.centurion-mbt.com (Steel-Thunder) I managed to get a few. Anyone who has an interest in Australian armour or the Centurion must, I repeat: MUST have a look at this site. There are more pages than you first think (and see them all!) all jam-packed with Centurion data, photos and stories. This is truly an amazing site and well worth several visits. For the immediate future I will start again searching for photos of Canadian vehicles from the Second World War for some more CVM pages.
25 December 2007 - This latest update includes several more CVM and NCVM articles as well as more Canadian vehicles in the Photo Gallery. These include a look at side armour protection used by the Canadian Grenadier Guards in Europe in 1945, also there is coverage of the Fort Garry Horse Reconnaissance Squadron HeIicopter Troop with their Sioux helicopters hovering over their Ferrets in 1963. The photos cover more than just a single photo shoot as can be seen by the white and black painting of 'Cdn Army' on the rear fuselage of the helicopters. Also have a look at new German artillery and some coverage of the T72M2. I have also managed to relent and include a whole new batch of photos of dead Israeli vehicles found in Ismailia shortly after the 1973 War. There is a series of three shots of a single Centurion hit from the right side which detonated the ready ammunition and blew out the front of the vehicle. Also there is all-around coverage of the Sherman 155mm Self-Propelled Howitzer, should be good enough for a scratchbuilt project. I have also added a new section in the Reference areas of both CVM and NCVM. These two sections are indexes which list vehicles found in both sections by vehicle type, so if you want a Sherman you need no longer start reviewing all the pages but can cut to the right one quickly. Hopefully this will aid readers to find their vehicle with less wasted time. Finally, I have decided to cease printing the CVM series for the time being. As my publisher isn't any longer I am on the search for another and if left to my own devices only the Stowage series is within my capabilities. When I get that one going I will advertise and sell them via this site. Hopefully they will have a bigger draw than the rest of my efforts.
06 October 2007 - The summer is over and I have managed to expand the CVM and NCVM articles by a few. I took the time to write another book this summer as well, to the detriment of the web site. Shortly I will be adding some more photo files, maybe. Once again I have had trouble with a reader wanting markings information. Why oh why is it always the re-builders who end up throwing nasty childish insults when they are thwarted? In the current case the data he wanted was in one of my CVM articles and he either lacked the intellect or ability to look at what was there before seeking help. Then, when I refused to take the time for personal instruction (I even told him which article to read!) he discovered that he didn't need my foolish help anyway...then he decided that I had done far less than other military veterans and was a whiner. Well now, talk about getting personal!! Anyway I hope he finishes his carrier and enjoys riding it...until he flips it and gets ground into human hamburger...(did I wite that out loud?). So here it is again for the feeble-minded who can't find the FAQ page: DON'T ASK ME FOR MARKINGS DETAILS FOR YOUR VEHICLE OR MODEL, I DIDN'T HAVE THE TIME TO NURSE THE CHRONICALLY STUPID WHO HAVE ANNOYED ME TO THE EXTENT THAT I NOW REFUSE TO HELP ANYONE. SORRY. I'm sure there is many a person who will suffer for others stupidity but there it is, I have either the time to work on material for this web site or to research answers for a select few...I will always choose to work for the good of the greater number...that's you readers out there (both of you!).
15 June 2007 - I have done a little more updating as well as adding a few new CVM and NCVM pages this time around. When my current writing activities are done I will do some serious scanning and update the photos on the site. I am still working on Bison drawings as well as Otter and half-tracks. As I have had very little response to my updates I will continue to so what pleases me.
15 April 2007- This time around I have added a good number of NCVM articles dealing with Australian Leopard tanks. As they are being phased out of service and I had a couple of hundred beautiful shots provided by my good friend Barry Marriott, I decided to do up as many vehicles as I could. So that is why the outburst of Leopards. I had to redo the earlier Part 4 and replace it with a four-page spread covering the changes in markings and camouflage patterns, so do not scan past it without a look. Be prepared for a similar batch of articles covering M113s, M577s and M548s as well as the ASLAV. I hope to balance this with some more modern Canadian material soon. I replaced the headers on both CVM and NCVM pages as the old ones were taking up too much valuable space. New headers mean new content. As ever, comments on vehicles you would like to see are always welcome, I will try and meet what you, the reading audience want, as you are the reason I maintain this web-site...I try and provide what you want from what I have.
27 February 2007- this update sees the expansion of both the CVM and NCVM series' as well as a few pages added to existing articles. Affected articles are CVM: 33, 39,40 and 41, NCVM: 36 (finally), 38, 40 and 41. After discussions with Peter Brown, Mike Starmer and Timothy Neate I feel I have finally got the colours for these Shermans right. Many of you have written to give me your comments on the revised AA and I thank one and all for those comments, both negative and positive. I will continue to upgrade the site in those areas I enjoy doing unless I get requests for something different. I have been working on an ORBAT for an infantry division of WW2 vintage and have 22 pages after assigning infantry battalions and artillery assets...it seems this one will be massive. I am very close to finishing the first two volumes of my Vehicle Stowage series so watch the 'Books' section for their appearance for sale. As an aside I really regret having to post my CVM and NCVM articles as pdfs, as they get rather 'fuzzy' when converted. I use Paint Shop Pro to make them and in that format they are quite crisp and clean. That's the lot for now
