Eichenberger is seen again on January 18, 1944 from the port wearing 31/16D camouflage. The darkest color definitely appears light. The two lighter colors appear almost the same shade possibly because of the filter used or the exposure. Compare the large panel on the bow to the drawing; this caused the camouflage section to comment to the shipyard that the pattern was not done properly. Photo source: NARA BS 58088.
