A speedletter on 11/1/44 from Portland, Oregon Shipyard to BuShips listed APA-165 through APA-180 would be painted 32/6A for odd numbered ships and 32/4T for even numbered ships. BuShips on 11/14/44 approved APA-165 through APA-174, but said plans for APA-175 through APA-180 would follow later.
A port bow view of USS Gage (APA-168) wearing camouflage 32/4T taken from USS Adair (APA-91). Both ships were on the way to the Okinawa landings, this photo is marked as having been received on April 17, 1945, but was probably taken earlier in April. The colors should be dull black, haze gray and light gray. Photo source: NARA 80-G-314465.
