Camouflage Measure and Design was assigned in 10/11/43 ComServPac letter #0937 to the BuShips which assigned camouflage Designs to most ships in the Pacific Fleet.
The official caption of this photo claims that this is USS Cotten (DD-669) with a near-miss from a Japanese shore battery off Luzon during the battle of Lingayen Gulf on January 8, 1945. This ship is clearly wearing camouflage 9D, however on January 8 Cotten was escorting Task Force 58, which should have been farther off shore. A closer analysis reveals that this is probably an Allen M. Sumner class, and the most likely candidate is USS O'Brien (DD-725) which did participate in bombardment of shore batteries on Luzon on that date. Photo source: NARA 80-G-301230.
