I seem to recall seeing a B&W image of one and not seeing any tonal variation between the dark blue and what would have been black stripes. Edit, ah @Tailspin Turtle I think this is where the confusion of the yellow only being applied underside and the rest in white came from, reading Daves post again I think he meant that only the yellow, ie not black, stripes was applied underside. Yes, you can see it on the colour image on Flickr, and on another in FAA Squadrons book (414/WT984). The father of a friend was on HMS eagle at Suez and said he painted the aircraft with 'blue and yellow' stripes. There is a pic of an Albion aircraft ( WV179 424/C) that seems to show definitely black and yellow stripes. I did get my left and right mixed up on the LSO/Angle stripes, they should be on the left side Edited August 24, 2019 by Dave Fleming 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
