Can anyone point me in the right direction for some information on the colors of Polish FT17's used in the 1919-1920 Polish-Soviet War. Books, website/photos would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Sean

Sean,

For time being there is uninteresting the Polish FT in 1920 had original French factory camouflage. Later in mid 20's the were repainted. There is no good source of Polish FT from that war in internet but the is the book which covers FT17 usage in Polish Army quite extensive:

Marek, thank you for the link. I knew they kept the French colors, I am curious to see if there were slogans and unit markings added that are specific to Polish use.

Thank you,

Sean
