We give here some remarkably interesting natural-colour photographs showing how the British khaki uniform appears when seen against the background of a European landscape, as it is during the present war. Khaki was originally adopted, as explained in the article above, for use in India, where, as a:so in Africa,* it harmonises better with the usual colouring of the country. Against the sutmmer green of Europe it is slightly more conspicuous, but will be less so as autumn advances and the country assumes a browner tinge.
