S.C.C. № 15 Olive Drab replaced the earlier S.C.C. № 2 Brown base colour. Units were not issued the new S.C.C. № 15 Olive Drab paint, until existing supplies of the service brown paint had been used up. As a result, many wheeled and tracked vehicles participating in the Normandy Landings were still painted service brown. Equipment was now painted S.C.C. № 15 Olive Drab overall without disrupter; the dark disrupter on service brown vehicles was to be painted S.C.C. № 14 Blue-Black.

British Bailey Bridge equipment retained the S.C.C. № 2 Brown base colour to distinguish British Bailey Bridging from outwardly similar, but inkompatible US Bailey Bridge equipment.
