Does anyone have definitive advice on Australian SW Pacific theatre flying suit/clothes colours?

Most of the photos that I have seen they wore the tropical dress and never wore flight suits due to the hot temps.

I have an original WWII tropical shirt somewhere in the colour in that image as well as the green pacific one. These are the half button 'airtex' ones that were worn by soldiers and various others. I will try and find them in the morning.
