From the HPA website:
Officers had four color choices available for shirts: Khaki Shade 1, Drab Shade 54 (pink), Olive Drab shade 51 and enlisted ranks' Olive Drab Shade 18. Olive Drab Shade 51 was not authorized for wear with the officer uniform blouse; shirts of this color, like those authorized for officers in the enlisted ranks' shade 18, were reserved as a working uniform shirt worn with trousers but without the blouse. However, t were instances when regulations were sometimes overlooked and the shade 51 shirts can be found being worn with the blouse, though such applications were not common and forbidden if you went by the book. Our copy of the 'Rangoon' is available in Olive Drab shade 51 or Drab Shade 54 (pink). We have seven form-fitted sizes available, and each shirt comes with its own authentic officer-grade necktie.
