  Mountbatten pink - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mountbatten Pink, also called Plymouth Pink, is a naval camouflage pigment invented by Louis Mountbatten of the British Royal Navy in autumn 1940 during World War II.
Mountbatten was escorting a convoy and noted that one ship in the group vanished from view much earlier than the remainder, a Union Castle liner that was still painted in its pre-war medium lavender mauve grey hull colour.
One of the anecdotal and possibly apocryphal tales told in support of Mountbatten Pink was the story of the cruiser HMS Kenya (nicknamed "The Pink Lady" at the time due to her Mountbatten Pink paint), which during Operation Archery covered a commando raid against installations on Vågsøy Island off the Norwegian coast.

 NATURALLY SPEAKING: Pretty In Pink: Mountbatten Pink
In the autumn of 1940, at the height of the War of the Atlantic, Mountbatten was escorting an Allied convoy and noted that one vessel consistently vanished from view much earlier than the rest.
The Union Castle liner's hull was painted a pinkish-purple and the admiral became so convinced that the color was special that he had all the destroyers painted the color.
The color was called Mountbatten Pink and it was actually pretty effective camouflage during the dawn and dusk, when it blended into the purple haze along the horizon.

For anyone who is following the comment thread about Baker-Miller pink (and if you are, get a life) and would like to see the shade in all its html glory, I have created a page that is the precise hue of Baker-Miller pink.
Gray-Asparagus Green and International Klein Blue (obviously Klein was running around all over the place when he invented that shade of blue).
It obviously takes two people to create pink, because this is what happens when we leave the creation of pink to a single person.
