I'm trying to determine how the MN painted its ships. I've read that some units (for the North Atlantic) had a dark blue color (and I don't remember where I got much of this information, it's been years) but mostly vessels were a light grey. I've found photos/drawings of other ships that appear to be a light grey, with a sort of dazzle camouflage. A couple days ago I had to rethink what I had been told. Below are pictures of two French vessels, the Aviso Auxillaire P8 and the liner Dal Piaz. The photos were taken in Cassis, and most came from the linked website, although I am finding them on other sites. SO, did the MN paint their ships in camouflage patterns? Any help would be appreciated.
