USS Kenneth M. Willet (DE-354) is seen from the starboard side in Boston Harbor on September 24, 1944. Willet is wearing Admiralty type “A” camouflage in preparation for the upcoming camouflage tests. The darker B-20 panel is barely visible because of the bright sky background. Note, the masts of another ship are visible directly behind Willet. Photo source: NARA BS 132056.
USS Kenneth M. Willet (DE-354) of the John C. Butler class on September 24, 1944 in Boston Harbor wearing Admiralty Type “D” camouflage on the port side in preparation for the camouflage tests . This is a good match to the drawing except that both colors appear darker than they should. It should look nearly like light gray below the sheer line and pale gray above. It could be that the bright hazy sky has caused the ship to be underexposed and the sky overexposed or the paints were not properly mixed to match their British conterparts.
