Glad to see the blog restored to full working capacity again. Found this interesting article about "dazzle pattern" camouflage, used to disguise and break up the outlines of ships on the horizon. It was mainly employed during World War 1. I had always thought they were grey, black or white, so was surprised when reading this article I found out many of them were bright colours! They look like pieces of floating modern art. Check the article below.
