You Camouflaged my Battleship!

Seen in the center of the image is the ABRAHAM CRIJNSSEN, covered in branches and made to look like an island.  The captain of the vessel did this to evade capture after the battle of the Java Sea in Feb. 1942 during WWII.  They went right through Japanese naval lines in this disguise.
