A possibility to try.

I know how it can be done. Use a Look-Up-Table (LUT) to replace one colour with
another. Problem is I can not find a ready-made LUT.

There is a Gimp plugin gmic-gimp-qt (note the qt version) that lets you assemble
a bespoke LUT see: www.gmic.eu for download and instructions.

Very tedious to set up: looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/DNM2PDK.jpg

However once done, the settings can be saved. Those settings can also be
incorporated into a script (attached), which runs the gmic-gimp-qt plugin.

Unzip, pop in your gimp scripts folder. Find it bottom of the Filters menu along
with gmic.

Produces this:  https://i.imgur.com/I79QxDS.jpg the plugin has lots of work to
do, so be patient, it gets there.

Note it is still RGB and needs converting to greyscale Image -> Mode ->
