MOUNTBATTEN PINK


Above is a swatch of a colour that i find strangely alluring, Mountbatten pink or plymouth pink was invented during the second world war by Louis Mountbatten. The colour was designed to camouflage ships and was also adopted by the british SAS during the desert wars with the Germans. The colour despite its appearances is excellent at night because it does not radiate light and allowed especially are desert troops evade the enemy. I just wanted to share this colour with others so please enjoy.

RGB code: 997A8D
