USS Fletcher (DD-445) is shown from the port side wearing camouflage 32/2C at Noumea probably in May 1944; the lightest color appears to be washed out a little by the bright sun, but it is still light enough to be light gray. Notice that there is another destroyer on the other side of Fletcher, which is USS Nicholas (DD-449). There was a scratch on the upper right of the archive print from which this copy was made.
