I could not find a 'Calling All Ship Fans' category for the RN's escort carriers, so I'm posting my question here. Does any one of our many knowledgeable members know the colours applied to HMS Battler at the time of the Salerno operation. I have well over thirty photographs of this ship that clearly show the pattern but, as they all are black-and-white, I don't know the colours. Alan Raven depicts seven American-built escort carriers in British schemes (plus one in what seems to have been a standard pattern originally painted up in the United States) but none of these is Battler. Malcolm Wright shows Battler, but the pattern he depicts matches none of the photographs I have from the period, so I don't really trust his colour specifications.

Any assistance much appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Maurice
