British and Commonwealth warship camouflage of WW II

British and Commonwealth warship camouflage of WW II

Wright, Malcolm George, author

During the Second World War navies developed low visibility camouflage for their ships, on both the vertical and horizontal surfaces, in order reduce visibility by blending in with the sea, or confuse the identity of a ship by applying more obtrusive patters. In this book by maritime artist Mal Wright, both the official and unofficial paint schemes that adorned ships of the Royal Navy and Commonwealth are depicted in detail, along with discussion on changes of armament and electronics that effected the outward appearance of each ship
