Re: Camo pattern for HMS Queen Elizabeth as in 1941

A Google search for 'HMS Queen Elizabeth battleship' gives very few images of the ship showing the fore or aft faces of bridge, hangar or after superstructure in her 1941 camouflage scheme (as requested by the OP). There are some photos on the IWM website (http://www.iwm.org.uk), eg A 9829, A 9412, A 9255, A 9256, ADNO 8064, A 7520 (usual caveat about interpreting colour from balck and white photos), and there's a 1/350 build in the gallery on this site (http://www.steelnavy.net/TrumpQE350KKatseas.html) - but no indication of the source used for the camouflage pattern.
: Suggest you Google 'HMS Queen Elizabeth
: battleship' - lots of images including camo
