    From the book TBD Devastator Units of the U.S. Navy, page 90:

    "The Barclay 'dazzle' patterns were calculated to confuse observers as to the aircraft's size, range, and direction of flight. However, the tests revealed no significant advantage to the unusual colours and patterns, so the test aircraft reverted to their previous schemes and markings."

    It didn't look like it would help with camouflage considering that the sky is not green. I think if it looked more like clouds, then it would be looked at as camouflage. I think they were thinking that it would hide the craft from being seen through the trees, but it wouldn't stop it from being heard.
