Hi Graham. You've reopened an unpopular can of worms here. It's a topic that has been absolutely done to death and is purely subjective. Please have a look at the 4million previous posts addressing this particular issue.

Hi Graham, are you trying to paint a Bantam or a later unit single perhaps ??

There is no hard and fast colour matching. In the middle of the last century there was a different approach to quality control and as such these bikes could be different shades of blue or red or gold eoending which day of the week it was.
