Another Artillery colour question - L118 early 80s

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

Apologies for another question - Can anyone point me at the correct green for an L118 105mm Light Gun in the early 80s? As far as I can tell those on the Falkland Islands had the green / black camo. Most of my references are in black and white or poorly reproduced colour. Was it Deep Bronze Green, or another colour? 

Many thanks for any help,

Hi Gareth,

Sorry if this reply is too late for you. My father was in the RA from 1973-89, and I used to go to work with him sometimes and we walk around the tank park with him telling me about the different bits on the guns. From what I remember the guns were only NATO green, I don't remember seeing a camouflaged one then or when I served in the Army.


Sorry for the very late reply.

No worries Mac, thanks for the information. The pictures of the guns on the islands definitely have camouflage applied, but NATO Green will be a good start. (I'm hopeless at matching colours by eye :) )


Thanks again,
