I am fully happy with my determination of her camouflage pattern at this time, including flight deck lining, however, I am still not 100% happy regarding the colours used.
Over many years of viewing debates on this issue, there appears to be two distinct determinations:
Firstly: 507B and 507C.
Secondly: Two locally mixed colours, fairly close, but different from 507B & 507C. The argument being that as Alexandria was at the end of the long Mediterranean supply chain, large quantities paint would have been very low on the priority list. Therefore local stocks were utilised in the various "Alexandria schemes", including the scheme applied to HMS Illustrious.
Any thoughts or suggestions will be gratefully received.
