The Back End of the Bus

Recent discussion regarding Wallasey's unusual rear window layout and extra rear light prompted me to submit this photo I took at the 2014 Wirral Tram and Bus Rally. Preserved Birkenhead 105, BG9225, a Massey-bodied PD1, and Wallasey 54, AHF850, the Metro Cammell-bodied PD2/1 make an interesting comparison.
It may be an optical elusion but the Massey body looks to be almost low-bridge aside the seemingly taller Metro Cammell body. Also, references have been made to the Wallasey livery being called "sea green", with a variety of facts/urban myths to back this up. Can anyone reassure me that this is yellow and cream, not sea green and cream? If it is "sea green" then it's back to Specsavers for me.
