See why you are quoting that however there is little photographic evidence. Since most photos are b/w it could well be that the colours have merged. It is the same effect in US 2nd AD which used dark green over olive drab. It doesn't show on B/W but is just visible in contemporay colour films. Breware of colourised film and photos.

There are hundreds of photographs from 1940 showing the two colour scheme. The issue being as you quite rightly quoted that often B&W pictures merged the Grey and Maroon Brown schemes into one shade. You just need to search out lots of pictures and you will find them in due course to prove what I stated is correct.  Drew
