On 6/4/44 Commander Air Force Atlantic Fleet requested BuShips paint AVP-10 in camouflage 33/5D using haze gray and pale gray, then on 6/9/44 BuShips sent to Boston Navy Yard a drawing for 33/5D that was mislabeled in the memo 31/5D (sic). On 7/3/44 Boston replied with photos and a note that the contrast difference between the grays was difficult to capture on film.
