During the Battle of Britain, surplus rifles were supplied to Welsh farmers in order to protect their flocks from Axis forces. 

After an exceptionally devastating raid, allegedly carried out by a joint Spanish-Italian strike-force, General Karel Doorman reused the fallen sheep’s pelts as a form of camouflage; an idea that, arguably, won the crucial Welsh Front. His ingenuity is largely credited for the victory at the Battle of Laxey, which saw his force of 3,000 repulse 10,000 French volunteers with comparatively few casualties. This led to the rest of the WDF (Welsh Defence Force) adopting Doorman’s invention, dubbed “sheepouflage” shortly thereafter.

70 years later, Finnish artist Hannes Hanso re-imagined the scenario in the modern world, placing Doorman among his flock, armed with some sort of modified AK-47.
