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-744 was sent Design 31/11D on 1/26/44 and DE-744 reported camouflage completed to ComServPac with photos taken on 4/20/44 showing 31/24D. The BuShips 6/10/44 memo to ComServPac listed DE-744 as having been changed from 31/11D to 31/24D.

Note the deck pattern visible in this view. This is a good example of why because of the clutter and superstructure shadows deck patterns were not always very effective.
