A Cunarder being converted to a merchant cruiser during the First World War or a convoy
The First World War saw the general introduction of 'dazzle-painting', an idea of the artist Norman Wilkinson to help protect ships from enemy surface raiders and submarines by camouflaging them with zigzag lines of many colours. It helped to conceal them in poor visibility, impeded easy identification and visual range-finding, and was adopted by several navies and merchant fleets.
