I've seen several different pictures of these limited Despatch models.

They would look more realistic if they didn't have shiny chrome front forks, wheels and spokes, rear shocks and headlight rims.

The one that blows my mind is the Blue one.

I've never heard of the Military ever using a camouflaged Blue on any WW I or WW 2 motorcycle on any side of the conflict.
It seems someone in the front Advertising office must have said,
"There were also blue despatch motorcycles but they were just plain blue with white letters on them like "RAF" or "NAVY". 
With just big Royal Enfield letters on the tank it won't look like a military motorcycle....
I've got it!  We will just paint it with a camouflage looking design!!
With a blue camouflage paint job and big white Royal Enfield on the tank it will look just like the old dispatch bikes.  :)  :)."

If they really wanted to make a limited edition of dispatch motorcycles they would paint all surfaces and add a girder/springer front end.
Now, THAT would be special !! :)
