The U-Boats are Coming!

February9

In WW2 the allied fleet was getting a pounding from the German U-Boats, then a Naval Officer by the name of Norman Wilkinson got to combine his passion for Graf with his love for the see….well sort of. He invented the “Razzle Dazzle Camouflage” whereby the fleets ships would be painted with geometric shapes, apparently he thought this would confuse the U-Boats and they would shoot their torpedo’s off in the wrong direction, His explanation was ” their torpedoes will be shot in vain because they thought you zigged when you really zagged”. Anyway I think it made for pretty good art, so enjoy!
