Hi there

I'm actually working on that Tamiya-Tilda and I'm close to finish that project. One of the last steps is to attache the antenna. After Tamiya the "DEFIANCE" belonged to the 32nd Army Tank Brigade and as far as I found out to the 4th Royal Tank Regiment, to be more precice. Now my question is related to the pennants for the 4RTR. Which colors for the pennant was of use and how many pennants were applied on the antenna.
Some shots showing 1 pennant some shots 2. Help would be appreciated.

Do you mean Recognition Pennants, or Signal Flags?
I'll assume the former.

4th RTR used twin red pennants for a time, but I'm not sure when exactly.

Your Matilda is from November 1941?

Perfect, thank you? The only "data" I got is 32nd Army Tank Regiment Lybia 1941.

Today a friend of mine directed me toward Osprey Vanguard 23 British Tanks in N.Africa 1940-42. After that source Matildas from 4 RTR got blue unit pennants for Operation Crusader.
