Speaking of camouflage, there’s Britain’s WWII Camouflage Development and Training Centre, which recruited a very eccentric collection of people including magicians, zoologists and surrealist artists. Like Bletchley Park but with sexy magic and arty stuff.

“…on one occasion he experimented with a matt green camouflage cream, smeared on the naked body of his lover and future wife, the American model and photographer Lee Miller. She lay on the grass of a friend's garden, delicately covered in netting taken from the raspberry patch. Penrose was delighted with the results, and concluded "that if you could hide such eye-catching attractions as hers from the invading Hun, smaller and less seductive areas of skin would stand an even better chance of becoming invisible".”

Yes, war is hell.

Fabulous - I've been reading round those links.
Has the channel 4 film been and gone here? Had a feeling it might have been in The Secret War series recently?
