Careful—Tojo Knows Trees Don’t Smoke! (Feb, 1943)

Careful—Tojo Knows Trees Don’t Smoke!

WEARING mottled green suits and head-nets, these snipers shown at left step out of character as part of the scenery for a quick smoke during Army maneuvers. Primarily designed for use in forest and jungle country, suits like these enable men to fade almost completely into any leafy background, move about in the shelter of invisibility; the head-nets are for holding twigs or leaves. Note how legs of soldier at left blend in with foliage.

    “Note how legs of soldier at left blend in with foliage”

    especially if you’re fighting in a black and white jungle…
