Colour of machine guns

For those of you painting machine guns, this is the reference you need. It's the Maxim that Gordon Harper used at the Apex and bought home, complete with original paint.

There are letters and diaries from machine gunners describing how Wallingford issued paint and brushes to the crews in Egypt, to paint their own guns. As you can see, it's a light yellow olive, or jungle green.
