Although there were only ten squadrons equipped with the Bristol Bulldog during the drastic cut back of RAF fighter strength following World War 1, they were certainly the most colourful. Each unit had its identification colours shown on the fuselage and upper wing surfaces and squadron and flight commanders had individual colours on the tail unit. But that was not all. As new squadron commanders took over at the end of a tour of duty of their predecessors, they made changes to the squadron markings making this period one of the most colourful and perhaps controversial of all the pre-war squadron markings. The history of the Bulldog is also of considerable interest as it was exported or built under licence in a number of overseas countries thus adding to the profusion of colour schemes of that period. Richard J.Caruana has detailed the history of the Bulldog and given a great variety of colour schemes that were used. In fact this Warpaint can be said to have more colour side view drawings than most others of its size in the series. Centre spread drawings show the variations that were built at both home and overseas and there is a list of all squadrons and units with representative serial numbers plus a list of available kits and decals that have been produced over the years. Not a book to be missed.
