About the "Between the Lines" blog

Our latest exhibition "Between the Lines" reflects our response to the commemoration of the 1914-18 conflict.

This blog will focus on stories behind the work by the E.A.S.T artists as well as looking at other artistic and cultural commemorations around the UK that relate to WWI.

Dazzle Ship in London

Artistic and cultural eventsPosted by Janette Thu, January 01, 2015 21:16:24
As part of the WW1 commemoration, two ships have been painted as "Dazzle Ships" - a way of camouflaging the boats so they were difficult to attack by submarines. One of the ships is in London - HMS President along the Embankment. Just before New Year, I managed to catch a glimpse, albeit it rather late for photographing. The second ship is in Liverpool (which I am unlikely to get to). I am not sure how much longer they will be painted like this - the website information just says until 2015.
