    Bomb, Smoke B167 Box Colors

    Good day to all,

    I am restoring a B-167 box for Smoke Bombs that are for a 2" Bomb Thrower for Armored Vehicles or Tanks. What little bit of paint that was left appears to be a dark green. However, I noticed some paint that looks like a sea green stripe around the entire box on both ends. Does the sea green strip cover the entire end of the box or just a part of the end? So I believe the box is painted two different colors for easy identification. Does any body have a picture of this this type of box or information of how or what colors were used or how they were painted for a B167 Ammunition Box for Smoke Bombs, Mk. I/L 2" Bomb Thrower for Armored Vehicles? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    WW2Junky

    Searching for particular info I came across your old thread hence a late reaction to it.

    According to RAOC Regulations all packages (i.e. ammo boxes) containing smoke ammunition are painted Light Brunswick Green (BS381C 225) as the base colour. No matter what kind of ammo, smoke was always this colour.
    A package painted in Deep Bronze Green (BS381C 224) would generally indicate High Explosives or other ammunition except smoke.
