The design drawing for Measure 3_/1D for the Fletcher
class was probably drawn in 1943. The lightest vertical color, which is not labeled, would be light gray (5-L) for Measure 32 and either ocean gray (5-O) or haze gray (5-H) for Measure 31. There were no front or rear views of the turrets given in this drawing. The horizontal pattern used the standard ocean gray (5-O) and deck blue (20-B). Note the stern view at D
, there were two interpretations of this view.
The first drawing for Design 1D was attached to the March 1943 Supplement to SHIPS-2 for DD-380 Gridley class using Measure 33. Design 1D was also worn by the battleship USS Tennessee (BB-43), the large cruiser USS Alaska (CB-1), the light cruisers USS Raleigh (CL-7), USS Houstan (CL-81), and USS Miami (CL-89) all in Measure 32 colors. The light cruiser USS Columbia (CL-56) wore this design using Measure 33 colors. In addition, Design 1D was worn by numerous Sims class destroyers and Evarts class destroyer escorts mostly in Measure 32.
