She was painted into MS-12 at Puget Sound because she was going to LANFLT. It is very possible that her hull color is 5-D given the date of those photos (Oct. ‘41). It has not been confirmed yet that Puget Sound had access to 5-S paint by this time. Mare Island seemed to be the only Naval Yard with 5-S at this time but more research is needed to confirm this.
In the reply Rick I wrote Measure 1, because I had read that somewhere, but after checking that, I am not sure. Measure 12?
