Colour code of Luftwaffe Ambubulance Ju 52/3m found not matching other DLH of the period.

Hi All

Whilst browsing thousands of pages of surviving RLM documents in USA in October 2017 I came across an Junkers color spec page I had never seen or mentioned.

Even Googling mostly failed but explained (some) on DLH Silbergrau etc. Here

But there was different protective color for 'Sanitatis´ machines with Red Cross applied on fuselage (see Page bottom)

The date 17.10.1935 was quite surprising as all previous info I knew of was in 1939/1940 period and onward.

Here exterior colour on tail and fuselage was Thurm & Beschke J333 Nr. 53 ´Grau´ and not Hellgrau (also listed). A difference from DLH Shade 54 'Grau´.

Question is: Does this colour palette survive, I mean this was maker of Automotive paints in Magdeburg and somebody might have a copy ... The factory even had a Stamp made.
