Engineers boiler suits

Recollect my Dad's boiler suits were white in the 60s and 70s. Why were they white? Also would they have been provided for him, or did he have to supply them?

Thank you. Think, respectfully, you have confirmed, what I thought? The sides of the ship took a beating in the Bay of Biscay more often than not?
