A brief history

Matilda Caunter Scheme

The Caunter Scheme was a series of camouflage paints and patterns used on British and Commonwealth vehicles in Africa and the Mediterranean through 1940 to 41. The scheme was devised by Col. Caunter of the 4th Armoured Brigade. The scheme would later become known as the Caunter scheme, although this was not the case at the time it was used. The scheme essentially used three prominent colours, Light Stone, Silver Grey and Slate in a horizontal splinter pattern.’

The Mark IV Matilda Tank (1941-42) introduced an improved Leyland diesel, and the turret leather belt fixation replaced by a fixed tubular mounting.  It was the main production version, with perhaps 1200 units built throughout 1942.
