[AmRevolution] Painted Knapsacks

I am seeking information regarding the knapsacks of HM Marines from 1776-1781. I have one source which indicates that the marines painted their packs, which I assume means they must be painted canvas or linnen. The same source indicates the use of yellow ocher paint, but there is no mention of painted heraldry, crests etc.

Does anyone else have any information regarding this subject?
