Default Canadian 4th Div - Formation Patch Colour

Can anyone please tell me exactly what green the 4th Div formation patch should be?

In want to make sure I get the right colour for vehicle markings.

Cheers

Tim

Perhaps this crop of a wartime colour image will help.

Should it be the same as the Div patch worn by troops - if so, I can find one of those perhaps for a colour match.

Thanks

Tim

Bit of a variety in the colours. Photos from a Facebook page.

I think a slightly darker grass green should get you close.
