There are a host of marine craft, both military and civilian, that have been designed or converted to serve the needs of flying boats; tenders, refuellers, cargo craft to name a few. Here is the place to post photo's, plans & drawings, in-fact anything appertaining to these craft.
It isn't generally known that Supermarine ran a marine department in the closing years of WW1 and for a few years after. They designed and built craft generally of around 25ft length, including one used as a tender for the royal yacht Victoria and Albert II. These two were proposed as seaplane tenders. The two company craft Tiddlywinks
may have been versions of the second type.
