Databases at ... http://www.usndazzle.com/ship.php?id=166 ... shows that USS ALTAMAHA was painted in dazzle scheme Ms 32/2Da in late February 1944. A photo dated in September 1944 shows her still in the dazzle scheme. When she painted out of dazzle, I have no idea. Images on Navsource show that she was at PSNY in early 1945 and departed painted in Ms 21.
