FS 267 is excellent because it covers the whole 100 year period.
There are also two dedicated issues of Militaria Magazine, numbers 255 & 257, you can order back issues direct from the publisher or they do occasionally appear on the well known auction site.

I am investigating whether the Society has any hard copies left and will report back.

If not we can provide it as a PDF.

Watch this space.

Hi

The best reference IMO is 'Tanks Again' by Peter Payne & Jim MacDonald.

This was available on CD and also I believe there was a limited number published in Soft Back?

The last CD I obtained for a friend was about 15+ years ago from the late Jim MacDonald. I wouldn't know where you might obtain one now, I think you'll have to continue to ask around.
If you're a serious RTR collector its worth getting as its effectively a complete, if not definitive guide and includes everything: badges, cloth, uniforms, headdress, ephemera etc. etc.

Best of luck
Rob

Tanks for that, but is the book "Tanks Again" or "Tanks and Goodbuy"?

Ah, I see there were three books by those authors, the third being "Tanks Again Another Look at Things To Do with the RTR and its Predecessor"?

I have a feeling 'Tanks again' was the last in the series.

I have PM'd the OP with regards to 'Tanks Again'.
I too have a CD ROM that I got 15 odd years ago.
I printed it out and have offered this to the OP, but have heard nothing.
