Dazzle Ships

Some people may remember me drawing this ship as part of an art challenge that gave us the word Dazzle as a theme.
When I researched it I found that Dazzle ships were used in the war to confuse the enemy as to their exact position.
Imagine my surprise to come across one for real when I was walking along the Thames Embankment, London while on holiday.
It was part of an exhibition and looked quite magnificent.
