Hi All,
I'll be diving into Warlord's Cruel Seas game, and was wondering what you would recommend as the best [single] source for paint schemes for Great Britain's Royal Navy Coastal Forces (MTBs & MGBs)? Would that be -

There is a book by Sir Peter Scott, the naturalist, who was an RN Officer during the war. It covers paint schemes inspired by nature.

I'm not sure what it is called but someone will be along soon enough to tell.
