USS Taylor (DD-468) in early 1944, possibly in Noumea, New Calendonia. Taylor has recently painted in what appears to be camouflage 31/1D. Notice the contrast between the white hull number and the lightest color which appears to be ocean gray. Photo is taken from USS Taylor WWII Cruise Book.
Another poor photo of USS Taylor (DD-468) in early 1944 possibly at Noumea that at least seems to confirm Taylor wore Design 1D. Part of the photo appears double exposed. Photo source: NARA BS 125402.
