USS Cross (DE-448) is seen from the starboard possibly in New York Harbor in December 1944. This is camouflage 33a/31D using ocean gray (5-O) and light gray (5-L). Cross at this point has no torpedo tubes so may be just delivered from the builder before being commissioned on January 8, 1945. Cross also carries a SU radar above the bridge and a DF antenna on the stack. Photo source: NARA BS 78450.
