This is a restored Master for Measure 31 Design 20L sent to the Bureau of Ships on July 8, 1944, by the Fleet Maintenance Office (FMO) of the Commander Service Force Pacific Fleet (ComServPac). The colors were identified by chips which were to be matched using existing paints (such as white and green tint) and identified as Green 1, Green 2, Green 3, Brown and Black. However, green 1 was close to haze green, green 2 was similar to ocean green, green 3 was close to navy green and brown was similar to brown (4-A). This Master was intended to be overlaid on an existing ships's profile and the pattern of panels transferred to create a camouflage drawing that could be sent to a ship or yard for painting. Some examples of the result were also included. This Master was created during the time that Everett Warner was visiting and observing the Pacific Fleet, so it probably had his approval. Note, because of the color reproduction process these colors may not be an exact match to the originals.
The Master for Design 20L was sent to BuShips on July 8, 1944, and then was used to create camouflage drawings for many ship classes during July, August and September, such as LCT's, LST's, APD's, ARS's, and AN's.
