And then my googling turns up lots of pictures of US carriers in dazzle paint. Oh, well. I think I know what it is, but I'm cheating so I can't win.

I'm pretty sure that the ship mnemonic was MAST. However, I'm damned if I can remember what all the letters stood for... Main hull-Armament-Superstructure and T____? I haven't been able to find the MAST method on the internet either.
Like Steven, I first checked the escort carriers, but that overhang at the stern and the size/shape of the island didn't match. I then checked the US light carriers; these looked similar in overall size, but again the shape of the stern was wrong.
Then I checked the aircraft on the aft flight deck. Those sure looked like roundels on the wings, and the US Navy started painting the bottoms of their carrier planes dark blue fairly soon after Midway, as I recall. That led me to the Brits.
