I voted for Cap, not for any historical accuracy but just think it looks better. From what I remember from personal experience I would say Cap is wearing new webbing, Les has been crawling around in the cuds and Ron has spent too much time in the sun!

It really depends on the Blanco used, in what amount and whether it's faded and worn away or not. I would take a look at any military museum and compare the different shades. I've seen some with the separate items in different shades.

Of the three presented though I would go for Cap.
