Reassigned to a new Design by the BuShips 6/10/44 memo to ComServPac that listed ships that had been reassigned from the 10/11/43 letter #0937.
DE-700 was sent drawing on 3/17/44 with memo that identified the drawing as 31/6D (sic), which must have been a typo since DE-700 was photographed in 31/14D on 3/26/44 in Boston. A memo with those photos from Boston referenced the 3/17/44 BuShips memo.
