For once, I agree with you. Very decorated or colorful British airplanes 
were simply rare. Germans and French had just more penchant for heraldics, 
and Germans used more colours for practical reasons, mostly.
Those crates had a rather short life expectancy, so they must have thought 
that in most cases an elaborate paint scheme wasn't worth the effort.
