  • The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Royal Navy warship gets first ‘dazzle camouflage’ painting since Second World War” – below is their description.

    A Royal Navy warship has been treated to a “dazzle camouflage” paint job for the first time since the Second World War.

    New patrol ship HMS Tamar will head to the Asia-Pacific region covered in shades of black, white and grey in strange, jarring shapes.

    The distinctive colour scheme was made famous during the world wars as a way to confuse submarines in the hopes of making torpedoes miss.

    It owes its existence to Royal Navy officer and artist Norman Wilkinson and the height of the first Battle of the Atlantic in 1917.
