An aerial port view of USS Minos (ARL-14) on March 16, 1945, wearing this as yet unidentified camouflage pattern, probably in greens. Minos was sent 31/5L through Jacksonville Shipyard on February 6, 1945, but the pattern seen here was used. Photo source: NARA BS 86760.
ARL-14 and ARL-16 were both sent 31/5L on 2/6/45. However, both were photographed in mid-March in patterns that do not match other 5L patterns. It is probable that another drawing, maybe locally done at Norfolk was used.
