USS Strickland (DE-333) is seen from the starboard at New York wearing what appears to be camouflage 32/3D modified on March 7, 1945. Strickland has the Atlantic Fleet modification of four single 40mm in tubs in place of the torpedo tubes and HF/DF on a short mast. A July 23, 1944 speedletter from Commander Destroyers Atlantic Fleet to the Bureau of Ships identified Strickland as having been painted in Measure 31 Design 3D in order to compare to Measure 32. Strickland may have repainted later into Measure 32 or this may still be Measure 31. Photo source: NARA BS 79394.
