    You will find the military paint used on boxes would be a Australian standard colour system like the British system BS381c. So BS381c, 110 would be roundel blue used on aircraft markings by the RAF etc. All government used colours, Battle ship grey, desert sand, Smoke bombs, ammo boxes and even post office red for letter boxes would come under this code. You most probably have the same thing there, not sure what the Australians use.
