Re: RN submarine camo
I do have copies of originals of the diagrams referred to in the CAFO's but if you have Volume 4 of Raven's WP series you can see them too as they are reproduced on page 41.
CAFO 1575 1945 page 44 had all subs as scheme J being 1) either a very dark colour overall e.g. very dark blue, green or grey or black. 2) paint black on decks, horizontal surfaces and saddle tanks, the rest to be G45. 3) use a camouflage scheme from CAFO Diagram 180/45 10 > 12 using colours on the diagram. Sorry do not have those drawings.
The Tabard has landed, and a beautiful piece of molding of a very complex hull shape. The two color schemes--light grey and black or PB10 blue--are correct for the 1945 ship, but info for the Far East subs seems sketchy and indecisive.
