USS Birmingham (CL-62) is shown at Mare Island on February 7, 1944 wearing camouflage 33/6D. The colors are pale gray, haze gray and navy blue. Birmingham may be only partially painted, the stern appears to still be Measure 21. Photo source: NARA BS 62444.
USS Birmingham (CL-62) at sea on June 12, 1944, taken from the escort carrier USS Gambier Bay (CVE-73). This camouflage is Measure 33 Design 6D using navy blue (5-N), ocean gray (5-O) and pale gray (5-P). Note the patchy repainting of the lightest color; at about this time pale gray was being phased out and it may be that we see light gray overpainting the pale gray. Two Fletcher class destroyers are in the background and the one at right is probably USS Benham (DD-796). Photo source: NARA 80-G-243383.
