I know that, by the time of the Second Boer War, British artillery carriages had changed from grey to a yellow-khaki. Would this apply also to the carriages for Maxim machine guns/pom-poms?

Yellow-khaki or Olive green?

I thought only the British artillery coming from India was khaki in the 2nd Boer War?

My information comes from Wargaming in History: The Second Anglo-Boer War by Edwin Herbert. He states that the wooden parts on the guns and gun-carriages were painted a yellowish-khaki, as were General Service and ambulance wagons.
