This reference is photocopied from a book entirely about aircraft markings but unfortunately I do not know the book's name, but it had an individual section for every country and spanned from the turn of the century to the late 1960's. This passage is taken from a 236 page section simply titled "Chronology" which started on page 171 and itemized all significant changes by date. Any information about this or a white disc with a black centre I have been told about would be appreciated.

The entry for 12 September 1916 is this:

Special national insignia for British night flying aircraft promulgated to all RFC units in an instruction which read:
The attention of all concerned is directed to the following distinctive marking, which it has been decided shall be adopted for black-winged night
flying aeroplanes :
On top and bottom wings, white circle the same size as
the blue circle used in the marking of day machines.

What I am after is any information regarding unusual (uncommon?) or major variations of British national markings (in this case - RFC, RNAS, RAF)for an updated version of a print I've created about British and Canadian roundels. The existing print covers 33 roundels and I am working on expanding it to a set of four prints with a total of at least 37 roundels.

Thanks for any help,
