this is mostly regarding British factory-applied colour post-WWII but I'm a bit confused about the information I found online.
The way I understand it, British post-war vehicles were still painted SCC 15 Olive Drab until ~1955 (see Dick Taylor: http://network54.com/Forum/47209/thread/1378716606
But then there is Clive Elliott's research (British Army Green Paints: http://www.warwheels.net/generalinfoindex.html
) that suggests that vehicles were painted BSC 24 (later 224) Deep Bronze Green starting in 1948.
So am I right to assume that new vehicles were painted DBG in the factory but repainted SCC 15 by the crews?
Or is DBG just a "recommendation" and vehicles left the factory in SCC 15 until DBG became the main colour in ~1955?
