The idea behind they weird paint scheme was to break up the outline of the ship making it difficult for the range finders of the day to accurately measure the range.
I wonder if it really worked or did it just give the Bosun a field day to get rid of as many old pots of paint as possible. Its only marginally more garish than Stelios's bright orange cruise boats

Keep posting 'em Stein - it's another great pic
