Is the upper superstructure being slowly returned to white or is it 2 shades of grey??

I believe the funnels had been painted Cunard colours just prior, but retained the grey for another few months

There appears to be an enclosed structure above the wheelhouse that is not as built and that was removed later. What is that?

the powers that be likely decided to forgo convention while trooping and allow a canvas dodger (windbreaker) to be rigged around the monkey island hand rails from at least 1942 onwards. This, in addition to the weather boards surrounding the compass binnacle. There's always a gale blowing up there, at 30 knots, when taking azimuths or tracking the Aurora (pre satillites,i.e, until after they discovered what caused it)) etc.
