['wear that air. * �� t ' Plow Napoleon would have enjoyed thW game of camouflage. When I passed the iron gate of the Iiivalldea- the gate that has never been opened since his body went through-I could almost imagine the greatest commaiid-er of history; muttering "h^i me out, I'll show them I "And indeed the dead hero of. Prance seenw to liave had some prevision of this \VorId war and the problems It -whuld- involve, for was it not his genius that planned the straight away �natipiialjroads which are HO convenient fon'marching armies and the double rows of poplara which are such useful camouflage for motor lories arid supply columns? An aerodrome is':a! hard thing to hide-^to some extent It must be out in the open, but cam'outlago and a background -of forest-If such a background l3 availablov-htelp to rob it of its conspicuousness. Comparatively did not believe in camouflage for ocean liners. Neither did the captain for. that matter, but I was converted to a belief in it after spending thirty-six hours in Halifax harbor where we picked up our convoy. One by on'p those ships stole out of unsuspecletl nooks and-crannies until we were twenty-one altogether and the solemn old sea looked like a Calitliumpian parade. After that I was prepared to admit that there might be something the Hun and for two reasons the filrst is that there are too many aeroplanes handy to chase the bomber and Fritz does not like to take long chances. .The .second reason is that he probably bombs- the bogus aero-I drome which Is artfully contrived to imake him spit alUhls venom. Not ohly Is the aerodrome a fake but phony aeroplanes of lath and canvas are scattered - about- so that ' when FHtz shoots he does perhaps a hund- fn camounage for shfps so long ^s the red dollars' worth of damage and there Sliore was used as a background. In this opinion I am abetted by , Com mander Hodder of the good ship Tuni sian who sticks to it that the best are no casualties. Tb\i:ard the end of the war camouflage had advanced'.from material to strategy. � The Cahadians pulled off wV day-in and dW .caWuHage ' a Eood trick at t^^^^ for the high seas is the war-grey of the British Navy. But camouflage on land-ah, that is another story!-The war could never have got along without at.

Experience: It is-an' It was, of course, advisable to deceive the Hun as to where wo were going to strike sext. So two weeks before the movement south-east toward Am-eins was started,- a-iiumor got about that the army would "march northwest toward Arras.
