The design drawing for Measure 32/2C for the San Francisco
class heavy cruisers was attached to the July 15, 1943 BuShips memo to PacFleet
. That drawing is yet to be found in the archives and this is what that drawing may have looked like. USS Honolulu
(CL-48) reported to BuShips on February 21, 1944, that she had been painted in 32/2C by Mare Island (probably in November 1943 using this CA-38 drawing) and asked for a copy of the drawing for maintenence. BuShips produced the drawing slightly modified on March 31, 1944, but for USS St Louis
(CL-49) and finally sent the drawing on July 20, 1944. This could explain the slight differences in pattern between Honolulu
and St Louis
A drawing for Design 2C was attached to the July 15, 1943, memo to PacFleet for the heavy cruiser San Francisco (CA-38) probably similar to the above. Probablylater in January 1944 Design 2C was drawn for the Fletcher class destroyers. Design 2C can be seen carried by the Brooklyn class light cruisers USS St Louis (CL-49) and USS Honolulu (CL-48). It was also used with slight modifications on many destroyer escorts of the John C. Butler class.
