Any thoughts on the color or Egyptian and Israeli decks for both the '48 and '56 wars?

They each used a number of WWII British ships. Wondering if they kept corticene brown, or painted it grey or green perhaps?

Without knowing anything about it, I wonder if the relevant vessels might already have had grey or green decks?

That's what I was wondering, too

At least today, ships are refitted pre-delivery, so I would expect them to have whatever the then-current RN deck color was.
