Footnotes

APA-26 was sent 32/14T on 11/13/44 through Boston with the note to 'adapt and fit'. APA-26 reported to ComServPac on 1/4/45 that she had painted 31a/16T based on BuShips drawing sent on 12/1/44.
APA-44 was sent Design 32/16D on 3/13/44. Service Force Pacific Fleet replied to BuShips on 8/7/44 that APA-44 had been painted in 32/1F from SHIPS-2, but after inspection (possibly by E. Warner) this was found inadequate and APA-44 was repainted in 32/3D.
