Hi,

In the latter part of her service with the British Eastern Fleet in the Indian Ocean, Richelieu was painted in the standard British scheme of the time - G45 (=507C) with the B20 stripe along the hull.

I found this link which shows the scheme in your photo, which suggests that the hull stripe was still B20, but the main turrets and aft superstructure were in a dark grey. Unfortunately the text is not readable.

Hope that helps a bit.

Paul

thanks. I think the turrets are in the same grey as the steel decks, so I will go with that.
