S& S Branch

Can anyone tell me where I might find a history of the S&S Department please. I am taking part in the National Archives WW1 lives at sea project which involves transcribing written service records into digital form. I have just done some S&S ratings from the 1st world war and am bemused to find that the writer sub branch had Wtrs 3rd class, 2nd Class and 1st Class but there doesn't seem to be Leading Writers or PO Writers. One record shows a Writer 1st Class being advanced to CPO Writer!?!
Any help gratefully received.

This would be the Supply and Secretariat Branch at this stage, a branch we would know today as Logistics.

I would be inclined to ask the Naval Historical Branch.

Naval Historical Branch
HM Naval Base (PP20)
Portsmouth
PO1 3LU
