This definitive work by James Taylor and Geoff Fletcher was published in 2015 by Herridge and Sons.

There have been some extra pieces of information that have arrived since the first volume was produced and as a result the authors have produced an addendum.  In addition there were one or two small errors which they have taken the opportunity to correct.  You can download the addendum here.
Volume 1 Errata

Unfortunately, a couple of errors crept in to Volume 1 and we thought it worth correcting them here. In addition, because
of further Freedom of Information requests, new data can also be added to the tables. We have organised these Errata
with references to the chapter and page, and for clarity the corrections and additions within existing tables are shown in
Bold type.

The corrections within existing tables are also shown with a yellow highlight

Further research suggests the original entry for 08 DL 93 to 10 DL 12 should be amended to read:

The precise split between Rover 8 and Rover 10 models has been difficult to establish for RAF vehicles as the RAF
records do not show the chassis number suffix. It is therefore possible that some, or all, vehicles in the following batches
are Rover 10.
