142nd Regt. Bishops
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Post subject: 142nd Regt. Bishops

When the 1st Canadian Infantry Division and the 1st Canadian Tank Brigade sailed from Scotland to Sicily, to take part in Operation Husky, they were accompanied by two British Artillery Units. One was the 93rd Bty of the 70th Medium Regiment RA, while the other was the 142nd (Royal Devon Yeomanry) Field Regiment (S.P.) RA.

I found some photos of the 25-pdr (SP) Bishops in Sicily, belonging to the 142nd Regt on the IWM site, dated the 27 July, 1943. From the photos one can see that the guns were not repainted before they left the UK. The question is what colour are they, Khaki Green No. 7?

There was an article in a not so old Tankette, I will try to find it.

Here are some more photos of Bishops in Italy, from the IWM site. The original captions appear below the photos.

What I found in the Tankette article.
The photos in Sicily match the MTP46/4A scheme from 11/41.
The materiel was supposed to be either Khaki Green 3 or SCC2 (ie. Brown) with a disruptive scheme of SCC 1A (a darker Brown).
The photos lean toward overall SCC2.
That's all folks!
And HTH
Thanks for the new photos!
