so 2 and a half years later is anyone else able to say if it is Light or Mid Brunswick Green for the factory finish on engines.

I assume the club has production info so someone must know for sure, such a shame this club refuses to share info.

I cannot confirm the colour used in the 1940s. your photo shows the sump being a different shade of green than the main block. Brunswick Green appears to be more like the shade of the sump, rather than the main block as in the photo.  Your safest way forward would be to buy/borrow as book of British Standard colour chips and compare these against your original paint on the engine. There are 3 shades of BS Brinswick Green, these are:-
Light Brunswick Green BS 225 381 C, 
Medium BS 226 - 381 C,
Deep BS 227 - 381 C.

Basically the relevant part of the codes are BS 226 (in the case on Mid Brunswick Gn). The later numbers usually indicate paint type/range and the C indicates (I think) commercial range of colours. The colour used on BMC engine blocks on later cars like 1960s Minis was Mid Brunswick Gn, but you'll need to check to see if was a different colour used in the 1940s.

I would add that most automotive paint suppliers will already have a BS standard colour chip book on their shelves with a relevant codes to work from in order to mix their paint. Hope this gives you some guidance and a starting point?  Sorry for long reply to post!

Can someone please confirm what is the BS paint code for the 1940's era 4 cyl side valve engine

I believe these remained in the factory applied "green" colour when in military service but I don't know what shade green it was. One person was told it is "Brunswick Green" and provided this photo as an example but my paint supplier can only use codes and the engine pictured is not mine so I cannot take a sample in for matching
