Camouflage Measure and Design was assigned in 10/11/43 ComServPac letter #0937 to the BuShips which assigned camouflage Designs to most ships in the Pacific Fleet.
This photograph was taken by USS Mississippi (BB-41) and the official caption is USS Aulick (DD-569) laying smoke on December 24, 1944, at Leyte. There is no visible hull number for confirmation and Aulick was at Mare Island on December 24, 1944. This could be October 24, 1944, since Aulick and Mississippi were together in Suriago Strait on that date. If this is Aulick, she is wearing camouflage 32/14D. Photo source: NARA 80-G-381386.
