Default Don Dingwall's "Canadian Armour in the Italian Campaign"?

Greetings,

Does anyone know where can I buy a copy of this book?

Cheers,
Mark

Mark,

I'm sitting here with a copy of it in front me. It was one of Mr Dingwall's earliest works and appears to have been 'desk-top' published. I purchased my copy at his table at a hobby show in Niagara Falls, NY.

Don is now publishing his books through Service Publications in Ottawa. They have a website here. While that particular title does not seem to be offered, if you contact them they will probably be in the best position to assist. As it was a 'desk-top' item it's likely still sitting in a drive somewhere in Don's computer and instantly available.

If you would like to know something specific however, I would be willing to look it up for you. At 54 pages it wouldn't take long to do.

Cheers,
Dan.

Thanks Dan,

I'll try the website and see what happens. Hopefully they would be able to do a print if it is self-published. I am particularly interested in the markings and camouflaging section.

Cheers,
Mark

This was published by Don and SP had no involvement. I may re-print it at some point but I haven't had that conversation with Don yet. I have no idea if he still has an electronic or paper copy.

Clive,

Thanks. I'd certainly be interested in a re-print or even purchasing a photocopy!

Cheers,
Mark

I would be very much interested in a copy. Did a reprint ever happen?

Default Italy Book

I've been working to complete this volume, but with the passing of Clive this will be my effort alone. The draft is in it's final stages now and at some point this fall I hope to have it ready to print.

Approx. 300 pgs, many photos, maps, color etc.

HTH
Don
