USS Ellyson (DMS-19) at Boston on December 17, 1944. Ellyson is wearing a camouflage pattern which is a match for Design 22D, so I have labeled this 32a/22D. The colors appear to be navy blue with either haze gray or light gray. The wear indicates that the painting was probaly done some time before this date, possibly even before December 5, when Boston was sent drawing 32a/29D for DMS-19. It is possible that Boston used another drawing to paint this camouflage, although no drawing for 32a/22D has yet been found. Photo source: NARA 80-G-382791.
USS Ellyson (DMS-19) again at Boston on December 17, 1944, wearing camouflage 32a/22D. Photo source: NARA 80-G-382792.
DMS-19, DMS-20 and DMS-21 were sent drawing 32a/29D on 12/5/44, but by 12/17/44 and 12/18/44 were painted in a version of 22D, probably 32a/22D for which the drawing is yet to be found. It is possible that the version of 22D was labeled 29D.
