Re: Interesting Degaussing pattern and plane markings on Tuscaloosa
I believe that this was December 1940, when President Roosevelt spent time on board the ship doing a tour of bases acquired from Britain.
Late 1940 or early 1941. This degaussing pattern didn't last very long at all. I believe the large number on the underside of the planes wings was short lived as well.
