On 12/9/43, CV-13 was sent a camouflage drawing labeled 32/14D, but this was probably a typo or mistake. CV-13 commissioned on January 4, 1944, wearing camouflage design 32/6A on both port and starboard, but three months later repainted the port (the District Camouflage Officer determined Design 6A was too dark on the port) using a modified drawing 32/3A while retaining 32/6A on the starboard side. Severely damaged by bombs 3/19/45 CV-13 did not return to the war.
