During WW2 did aircraft manufacturers have corporate colours and if so what were they?
Specifically what colours would their delivery vehicles be?

Would they have used general civilian trucks and do you know if they would have been allowed on an RAF base?
I'm looking at converting the Airfix Rescue Set fire truck into a flatbed carrying spare engines.

Probably Civilian vehicles with the drivers having paperwork and possibly a vehicle PASS.

Usually the RAF station would be aware of a pending delivery so the 'Guard Room' would have been notified.
(that's how it use to happen when i worked/visited RAF Stations).
