I know my memory ain't what it used to be - but isn't that mast topper called a "pineapple"??

Yes - formally EVHF informally a Pineapple. Clansman Green was Matt Deep Bronze Green

 

See: http://www.hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?10293-Paint-any-colour-BS-or-RAL

 

Having said that the links on the page are both defunct - deep Bronze Green is BS381 No. 224 at http://www.e-paint.co.uk/BS381%20Colourchart.asp - it should be distinctly less "grey" than the NATO green BS 381 No. 285 and distinctly less "yellow" than Olive Green No. 220 - having said that on my LCD screen viewing angle makes more difference to the colours - certainly more than there is difference between them at some angles - than I would like so you really need a printed colour chart from a paint store to be sure of a match.

 

Regards

Many thanks, I have a tin of the paint in the shed

Also a correction for the name, always learning

At least putting queries on this counts as CPD

Is your tin of paint matt because BS381C 224 DBG is available in gloss, semi gloss, satin and matt?

Now that's a good question, suspect gloss but need to check
