Camouflage Do's and Don't's

Volume 27, Issue 6

Clifton B Cates

DO change your position carefully. A proper "estimate of the situation" will make your work easier and avoid impossible camouflage problems.

Do avoid the skyline when concealing against observation from the ground.

Do make full use of natural cover. Utilize ditches, hedges, edges of woods, folds in the ground, etc.

Do avoid conspicuous landmarks. You don't want to be at a focal point of enemy attention.

Do keep in the shadow. The enemy can't see or take pictures in the shade.
