The drawing for Measure 31 Design 22D for the survey ship USS Sumner (AGS-5) dated June 22, 1944. This drawing specified the Measure 31 vertical colors of ocean gray (5-O), and dull black (BK) with the horizontal color of deck blue (20-B).
Design 22D first appeared as a pattern for Measure 16 in June 1942. This design was first drawn up on December 3, 1943, for the Evarts class destroyer escorts as well as the Fletcher class destroyers. Design 22D was dated January 27, 1944, for the Buckley class destroyer escorts and used three colors. It was later drawn for the Porter and Benson classes of destroyers. The battleship USS Missouri (BB-63) used Design 22D in Measure 32 colors of dull black, ocean gray and light gray. Design 22D was used for the Atlanta class light cruisers USS San Juan (CL-54) and USS Flint (CL-97). They were painted using Measure 32 in three colors, even though the drawing specified Measure 33 colors.
