did French Colonial Artillery wear the same colour uniform as the Colonial Infantry during the later ww1 period? ie eventually going to khaki/moutard? or horizon blue?

I have checked my books – they all say the Colonial Army went over to "moutard" – no exceptions listed – no ref to the Colonial Artillery being clothed in horizon blue.

French colonial army went over to Khaki around 1910, way before the rest of the army.

So by 1916 no blue.
