National Library of Australia's copies 1 and 2 include printer's color blocks (dots) above top left margin and have reclassified some vegetated areas as 'full cover' rather than 'camouflage cover' or 'scattered cover', using a denser and darker tree symbol pattern. National Library of Australia's copy 3 does not have the colour blocks and uses a lighter, thinner vegetation pattern in these areas, described in the legend as camouflage cover' or 'scattered cover'. Printing statements and other marginalia are otherwise identical across these 3 copies.
