USS Grady (DE-445) is seen in New York Harbor on September 23, 1944, with the Statue of Liberty in the background. This should be camouflage 32/22D using light gray as the light color, but the light color appears dark; Grady was sent the drawing for 32/22D as early as March 15, 1944. Grady was commissioned on September 11, 1944, so may have used another drawing and colors. She also carries a SU radar on the mast and a DF antenna on the stack. Photo source: NARA BS 71844.

Grady in another port view from in New York City on September 23, 1944, wearing camouflage Design 22D. The light color appears dark enough to be haze gray in this view. Grady was completed with torpedo tubes. Photo source: NARA BS 71842.
Grady is shown again from the bow in 22D at New York on September 23, 1944. Again, this appears dark enough to be Measure 31 using ocean gray. Grady would be in the Pacific by December. Photo source: NARA BS 71846.
DE-438 was sent 31/22D, DE-439 was sent 32/11D, DE-440 was sent 31/22D, DE-441 was sent Design 32/6D, and DE-443 and DE-445 were sent 32 22D all by 3/17/44, but they were for the wrong ship class. They were returned to BuShips by Kearny Shipyard on 3/20/44. All these ships were sent proper Designs later in April and May 1944.
