I'm not right up on ship paint schemes but HMS Illustrious appears to be in Med paint, Is this correct? Were British ships painted in campaign colours or did they have individual paintwork?

When I was a kid, I remember building the HMS Rodney kit where the paint options were for the the Indian sea - green; the others were the Homefleet grey or the Med blues. Take a look at HMS Illustrious.
