Silver Grey No.28, Slate No.34 and Light Stone No.61 or Portland Stone No.64 were used for the so-called Caunter Scheme employed from July 1940 until October 1941, when a single overall color of Light Stone No.61 (sometimes replaced with Portland Stone No.64) was introduced.
In December 1941, application of camouflage patterns in a chosen color was allowed.
In October 1942, Desert Pink ZI was introduced as the new basic color, with Dark Olive Green PFI to be used for patterning.
These would remain the official standard colors until April 1943.
