WW2 British & American cab interior colours

Guys, not owning a WW2 truck, I would like to know what paint colour was used on the inside of Allied vehicle cabs. I have read that they usually matched the exterior and recent posts on here suggest that is the case. Understandably if you open a white painted cab door it might show up to the enemy.

So where did the idea come from that  ‘eau de nil’ was introduced? Was it just an 'RAF think' or post war think with Gloss Bronze Green?

BTW - for clarity I'm excluding the internal colours of Office and Medical trucks that I know where white or cream to provide light. So its just the cabs I'm interested in.

In 1953 the RAF issued a lengthy AMO giving the future colours to be used in the various geographic theatres of operations. This AMO introduced Eau De Nil   but initially only for all types of FIRE vehicles.
