Intelligence Corps Colours

#1
I'm designing a tie for former Boys of the RAOC Apprentices College that will incorporate the colours of its constituent corps, including Int Corps. Please could you advise on the correct colours of your corps. Cypress Green and red I'm aware of but is the third colour white, grey or silver?

Surely Ichor is golden. Certainly in Greek mythology it is.
I had a whimsical turn...

''I'' Corps - said quickly sounds like Ichor - which whimsically,is the Green colour of liquid forced out of some insects,when you crush them (Fly-swatter,boot,book etc.,) - and is a nickname for The Intelligence Corps..........just me trying to be funny XPara...

I'm guessing you fitted right in, when everyone else was playing "Dance of the Flaming *********" and banging out "Father Abrahams"? :)

If anyone makes a Corps tie which can also be used as a wipe-clean bib can they let me know? Ta

I thought ichor was oozed by those that cannot be named e.g. the lurkers at the threshold in HP Lovecraft's stories. And the Necronomicon.
Classical Mythology . an ethereal fluid flowing in the veins of the gods.

In classical myth
Ichor originates in Greek mythology, where it is the ethereal fluid that is the Greek gods' blood, sometimes said to retain the qualities of the immortal's food and drink, ambrosia or nectar.[1] It was considered to be golden in color, as well as lethally toxic to mortals. Great demigods and heroes occasionally attacked gods and released ichor, but gods rarely did so to each other in Homeric myth.

Damn my eyes, I'll have to dig out the old charlatan's books and refresh my memory.
