A quick search shows that blue ambulances (alongside white or cream ones) were used in England and Wales in the 1930s to the 1960s by some cities or local authorities (including London LCC in some cases). Additionally the Saint John's Ambulance Brigade ambulances and some Red Cross ambulances were also blue.

Probably the idea of increased visiblity and eliminating dark colours was not considered necessary until the 1960s with the introduction of motorways?

Prior to 1946, the main provider, not the sole, of an ambulance service in Scotland was the St. Andrew's Ambulance Association. The colour of their vehicles was, in the main, a two tone brown colour. Some vehicles continued in this colour scheme well in to the 50s.

1948 The St. Andrew's Ambulance Association and the Red Cross form a joint ambulance committee and contract to provide all of Scotland with an ambulance service. The St. Andrew's and Red Cross Scottish Ambulance Service (commonly known as the Scottish Ambulance Service) began to standardise their vehicles and livery. During the 1950s the Teal blue colour scheme was adopted.

1968 saw the beginning of white ambulances being introduced in Scotland although there were still some blue ones when I joined in 1972.
