The drawing for 32/24D using two colors: dull black (BK) and light gray (5-L) as drawn for the Buckley class destroyer escorts dated sometime January to March 1944. This drawing included a stern view, but the bow view was crossed out.
Design 24D was derived from a Measure 16 pattern dated June 1942. In December 1943, Design 24D was used for the light cruiser USS Reno (CL-96) in Measure 33 colors: ocean gray and light gray. About the same time 24D was used with Measure 32 colors for the Fletcher class destroyers. In February 1944, it was redrawn for the Cleveland class light cruisers. Design 24D was worn by the light cruisers USS Springfield (CL-66), USS Topeka (CL-67) and USS Astoria (CL-90) in Measure 33 colors and USS Pasadena (CL-65) in Measure 32 colors. Light cruiser USS San Diego (CL-53) also wore Design 24D using the Measure 32 colors black and light gray, beginning in April 1944, until the end of the war.
