The John C. Butler class destroyer escort USS John L. Williamson (DE-370) is shown wearing what should be 31/3D at Orange, Texas, probably not long after comissioning on October 31, 1944, but before December 16, when this photo was received at Washington. The light color appears very light, almost white, in this view. Photo source: NARA BS 117893.
John L. Williamson again in 31/3D from the port side at Orange, Texas. The reflective sun on the stern has washed out some of the color. Photo source: NARA BS 95011.
