USS Morrison (DD-560) is shown from the starboard bow in an aerial view on February 24, 1944 off Seattle, Washington. The camouflage here is Measure 31 Design 13D using dull black (BK) and haze gray (5-H) and only the deck pattern on the bow is visible. Compare the details in the bridge area to other ships in 13D, they each painted in slightly different ways. Morrison was eventually lost on May 4, 1945 off Okinawa. Photo source: NARA 80-G-455513.
