Hi,
Please, I need a little help. Were the colors of Seafires Mk.IB's camouflage the same of normal Spits, or did they have some difference once they were of the Navy?
Or, where can I find references?
At once I thank.

Seafire Mk Ib were supplied in Dark Slate Grey and Extra Dark sea Grey over Sky. Spinner Sky. Squadron codes yellow. Serial number and 'ROYAL NAVY' black. Lower colour followed a line running up to the lower edge of the tailplanes, passing a cross the rudder in line with the trailing edge.
