Colour of A5 cab interior in LNER days

Anybody have any idea what colour(s) an A5 cab interior would have been painted in LNER days? From pictures of other tank classes I would guess at white/cream, but would that have also been applied to the cab rear / bunker, or would that have been black ?

I can't speak for the A5 class but can say that the A1/3 cab interiors were painted great northern green, IIRC 'Dark great Northern green', the tender front coal wall was also painted in this colour...
