I am doing a spec 16 Lister lighting set at the moment that is ex WD, it was painted olive drab BS381c 298. It had no transfers on and had WD and the arrow stencilled on the hopper.

I expect that they used one coat of whatever paint the Ministry of Supply would allow them to have.

Olive Drab was only officially introduced in early 1944.

Early in the war different shades of green were used but from 1941 brown was used as the official base colour for vehicles and equipment.

I made the war finish stencil from scratch and painted it with a spray can. To start with i didnt use the lister transfers i kept it plain, as you can see i have now fitted them and i think it looks better for it.
