I am assuming that the grey colour was chosen to make the DUKWs less visible on the run into the beach and, if so, RN landing craft colours would be the most likely. That suggest either G10 or B30. The former is a dark grey used on landing craft horizontal surfaces. The latter is a blue-grey used as a disruptor over white vertical surfaces.
It seems that Vallejo 867 - Dark Bluegrey - is a match for G10 and Vallejo 885 - Pastel Green - with dash of grey is close to B30.
What did you use Elliott?
By the way, the lack of a dorsal fin on the "dolphin" has concerned me. After playing around with Photoshop and the three photographs of A18, I am no closer to a resolution but I think that it could be a seal

Have you any idea of what date the first pic was?
Only asking because the BARV is towing an RAF Bedford OX and 33" trailer ashore.
I was under the impression that the Air Stores Parks and similar only came ashore from D-Day +12, and mainly through Mulberry 'B'
