Colours for the No.7 Tropical Undress Uniform circa 1938/9


New to this forum. Any help from forum member greatly appreciated on this.

I am trying to find the correct colours for a uniform worn by my fathers cousin a Royal Marine Marine/Corporal on HMS Ajax. It appears to be a No.7 Tropical Undress Uniform as per this image from It looks like Khaki, white belt and cover and red hat band with brass buckle and badge. Is this correct? Thanks



Thank you, very helpful, interesting to know it was still being worn by Royal Marines on HMS Bulwark over 30 years later.
