Art in Transit:Ā “Lord Mountbatten Thinks of Pink” by Jason Wee

Lord Louis ‘Dickie’ Mountbatten, friend to Noel Coward, Jawaharlal Nehru and Lee Kuan Yew, once thought it a good idea to paint a fleet of ships pink in wartime. In 1940, he invented Mountbatten Pink as a naval camouflage colour for the Fifth Flotilla. The naval commander reasoned that pink pigments will match the colour of the sky at dawn and dusk, making the ships harder to see by the enemy. Using these unusual connections as inspiration, the artwork depicts a modern container ship at those ‘pink’ hours, a vessel typical of those moored off the Fort Road shoreline close to the station. This station, and Mountbatten Road beside it, is eponymously named after him, the colourful last Viceroy of India.
