The colour scheme for the Aberdovey Class was the same as all other RMAS vessels - black hull and buff superstructure. I think this class also had a white band around the hull at hawse pipe level. As far as I know only two of this class went to the Falklands and that was long after the fighting had stopped - BLAKENEY was one of them. Since the RN/Marines operated them in the Falklands they may have been armed but not in UK waters.
