I was looking through my old Squadron Sherman in Action book when I noticed some of the Shermans used in Italy had a sand and olive drab paint scheme. I was wondering how common this was and was it used in any other theater of the war.

Not uncommon & also used in the NW European theatre, although black tended to be the contrasting colour used in that theatre. link links to the official instructions.

Not just Italy it is also applicable to Sicily earlier.
