Re: prewar turret symbols for US light cruisers
Actually, I think it was a rectangle with the ship number color, Red = 1, White = 2, Blue = 3, etc. http://www.researcheratlarge.com/Ships/USNTurretTops.html
What was the aft marking (symbol) on prewar Brooklyn class cruisers. I have not been able to find a clear photo of the aft turrets. Heavy cruisers had "dots". I know light cruisers had double stripes on the second turret either black or willow. I am interested in either the Philadelphia or the Honolulu. Both of which should be red for the flagship. But what type of marking on turret four??
