      I would plumb for a civvie scheme as I would be very surprised if your Proctor, (a Mk V if memory serves) ever had a military connection. I know that there are a multitude of civil aircraft masquerading as military, often with spurious and imaginative "Military" schemes. How many Messengers are there in "Montgomerys' scheme???? At worst the aeroplane should have a manufacturers scheme if the original colours for that particular machine are not to taste. eg Auster silver with red or blue stripe, Miles cream with crimson or green stripe etc. Applying a "Military scheme" because it looks good is a falsehood if that aeroplane never wore uniform in its' past life. How would it go if I were to dress up in an Army Colonels uniform and get everyone to refer to me with a Sir?? There is an old proverb:- "Be true to yourself and bear not fasehoods to your fellow man."

        Stan, the aircraft is a Mk III with wartime history as a crew taxi for the ATA, based at Thame.
