Personal Camouflage and Concealment

Camouflage and concealment

Camouflage and Concealment

  • You must know how to camouflage and conceal yourself or you will be easily seen.

  • The tone and colour of the hands, neck and face and the shape, surface and silhouette of the pack, must not contrast with their back grounds.

  • To avoid these contrasts you must.

Camouflage and concealment1

Camouflage and Concealment

  • Put camouflage cream, mug, burnt cork or something similar on the face, neck and hands; put on more for night work than for day.

  • Tie string across the pack, and use it to hold foliage, etc to break up the pack’s outline.

  • It may be necessary to camouflage the weapon by blinding scrim or hessian round shiny metal parts; but be careful that none of it blocks the view over the sights.

  • Look round or through cover, rather than over it; if it is necessary to look over it, try not to break a straight line.

  • Use shadow, and remember that when in the sun, your own shadow is very conspicuous, and that shadows move with the sun.

Camouflage and Concealment

  • Avoid isolated cover; the enemy is likely to watch it, and it is easy to give a fire control order on to it.

Camouflage and Concealment

  • Try not to be seen going into or leaving cover.

  • Move stealthily.

  • There are 6 things to remember when you are doing camouflage and concealment.

  • Shape: The body is an outstanding shape (some more so than others) in nature, and therefore the blocky figure does not fit in, it needs breaking up, with natural foliage to disguise the squared body parts, and webbing etc.

  • Surface: The surface of you and your equipment needs certain measures to make it similar to that of your surroundings. Also make sure you have nothing shining, which will give your position away in an instant.

Camouflage and Concealment

  • Shadow: Friend and foe, especially in Close Quarter Battle, with the sun behind you, your shadow may be projected past the corner of a wall alerting any enemy to your presence. Shadows should be used to their full potential, staying in them as much as possible is a great tactic.

  • Silhouette: The skyline of London, an outstanding monument against the backdrop of the sky. This is how much you would stand out pitched against the sky either at night or day. Avoid crests and hilltops.

  • Spacing: An obvious one, keep spread out to prevent the section all being killed in one go by hard gun power.

  • Movement: Movement draws the eye. When you give arm-and-hand signals or walk about your position, your movement can be seen by the naked eye at long ranges. In the defence, stay low and move only when necessary. In the offence, move only on covered and concealed routes.
