Drawing

This design drawing for Measure 31/1L for LST and similar ships from the March 1943 supplement to SHIPS-2. The Measure 31 colors were navy green (5-NG) over a background of haze green (5-HG). The navy green was intended to be sprayed and “feathered” over the haze green. This could probably only be done or maintained at a port facility.

This is the only Design 1L drawing yet found.

Original drawing source: March 1943 SHIPS-2 Plate XXXVI.
