Can someone direct me to specifications - and if possible pictures - of the RN embarked-small-craft during the 1930's and 1940's. I have made extensive Internet searches in connection with my Paper about Operation Dynamo, but the only type I've been able to find pictures-of were the Montague Whalers built for the Navy under Contract over more than 2 decades, by Walter Cook and Son of the Hythe, Maldon, Essex. I know there were Cutters, Gigs, Longboats, Barges, Pinnaces, etc - but can I find the standard Adm. specifications and some pictures? No. Not so far! So I'm hoping that someone on this forum can help. I;'m sure that DSVP cleared the Dockyards of HMS Wildfire of everything that could float to be towed across and employed to ferry soldiers over that half-a-mile of shoaling beach out to the Destroyers, personnel vessels, and Schuyts in depper water, - but of what Admiralty Types were those boats? V Come to that, what boats did the destroyers have embarked as a part of their usual establishment, that they would have used for the same ferrying duties. "Sands of Dunkirk" (1961), "The Miracle of Dunkirk" (1981), and "Little ships that saved an army" (1990) only mention these small Naval craft in the most general terms.
