The third book of my series on BRITISH AND COMMONWEALTH WW2 NAVAL CAMOUFLAGE is now with Seaforth/Pen and Sword and expected to be released around August 2016.
From there I am moving on to other navies of WW2. Europe for one volume, Japan for another.
To redirect the subject a bit, do you know of any references for where the linoleum was on the High Seas Fleet ships in the Great War? (like top down views!-) I have some GHQ’s gathering dust due to painting paralysis…
I know it was applied to the bridge wings and similar high areas where crew had to stand long hours at duty, when on watch. It was to protect their feet from the cold steel of the decks. Wood was too heavy to apply to those areas. In lower areas wood was used. Apparently it was applied to many below deck areas out of sight of where you will be painting your models. But removed fairly early experience demonstrated that it burnt too well and the fumes were deadly….as well as dense. I think therefore you will find more on the early ships than later built ones.
