I have this clipping from a period magazine - I think May 1915 - showing a camouflaged Town Class Cruiser. I've never seen one in camouflage before. It pre-dates HMS Chatham's arrival so believe that means it can only either be HMS Dartmouth or HMS Dublin - can anyone confirm either, and/or provide any further details on the camouflage? post-24634-0-93914000-1400278978_thumb.j

Dartmouth was certainly there later in the year. It was despatched from Mudros to Marseilles to bring Kitchener to Gallipoli in early Nov 1915,and was used in the area by Keyes around the same time.
