DescriptionStarboard side view of the cruiser HMAS Perth (I) The ship’s camouflage scheme has been altered, the sweeping curves of her original scheme giving way to a more angular design. The colours appear to be the same two greys, 507A (the darker colour) and 507C. Anti aircraft guns have been added to the crowns of B and X turrets. The catapult, with a Seagull V aircraft, has been reshipped on its turntable between the funnels.
