A photo of USS Halligan (DD-584) taken after delivering mail to USS Sargent Bay (CVE-83) on March 1, 1945 wearing Measure 31 colors: dull black and haze gray. Three weeks later Halligan was sunk by a mine off Okinawa on March 26, 1945; at that time Halligan was wearing Measure 21. Note that the whaleboat is painted entirely black while the drawing shows it to be only partly black. Photo source: NARA 80-G-264061.

A close-up photo of Halligan refueling from the USS Sargent Bay (CVE-83) on March 1, 1945. The official caption of this photo wrongly identifies this as USS Newcomb (DD-586). Compare details, such as the stains on the haze gray panel below the whaleboat, in this photo with the earlier view. Photo source: NARA 80-G-264040.
An enlargement from a photo of an officially unidentified Fletcher class destroyer supporting the landing at Iwo Jima on February 19, 1945. This is probably USS Halligan (DD-584) since the configuration matches based on analysis by Rick Davis and Halligan's hstory lists her 2700 yards offshore during the initial landings.
