Since these tanks came directly from England, were they in the standard bronze green, or in a desert scheme?

If you mean the 1st Army units, that's right. British colour scheme and markings. 8th Army units in the Tunisian campaign a more complex picture

The standard colour for new British tanks in the UK, up to the middle of 1944, was S.C.C.2 No.2 Brown. Usually with a darker disruptive colour. In Tunisia this would be S.C.C. No.14 Blue Black. Older vehicles could still have the been in Khaki Green 3

My 1st Army British stuff for Tunisia is in a mix of SCC2 (brown) and some Khaki Green, with some vehicles in "Tunisia Tiger Stripe" aka disruptive patterns painted on using liquid mud.
