there were so many brand new standard destroyers that the HUNTS were fairly early retirees and some i have seen pictures of wore the paint they were wearing at the end of the war, as far as i can find well before 1952 all were in reserve even the ones that had been used as targets etc!
: What was the paint scheme in the 1950s of
: those Hunt class destroyers assigned to the
: Reserve Fleet?
: Photos show a medium grey for the hull with
: slightly lighter upperworks. Where these
: neutral greys?
: Was this paint scheme retained with
: Arlington, Eggesford, and Oakley when they
: were transferred in 1959 to the new Federal
: German Navy?
: Thanks in advance
