NARN05 - July 1916 - Late 1920s Light Grey; 507B.
Introduced just after the battle of Jutland, this grey was gradually introduced on Royal Navy warships and became the standard peace-time colour for ships of the Home Fleet through the 1920s.
The description of "Light Grey" is historically correct despite the medium/dark appearance. The reader must understand that it was lighter than the Admiralty Pattern 507 and 507A greys already introduced! The names given by the Royal Navy were relative, therefore.
