For those military modellers of British military vehicles I have been able to formulate a simple mix for those 1939-41 vehicles. 5 parts Humbrol 155 + 1 part Humbrol 173. This is very close to a swatch I have from Hamilton's Paint Company in Canada, a swatch I made against parts of a recovered but unchanged 1940 Norton motorcyle and a 1939 steel helmet. The 155 is a 2014 tin which is slightly more green than my previous tin in 2012. You should add a little Humbrol 64 grey for scale effect and matt varnish over when dry.

Sorry I screwed up with the mix formula. It should be 5 parts H155 + 1 part H10.
