Books of this nature require extensive research, a task made much easier and far more enjoyable through the efforts of a large number of people who graciously provided assistance. To these individuals the author extends his heartfelt thanks. Among the many helping out, and in no particular order, were: A D Baker III; Chuck Haberlein; Paul Connor of the Smithsonian Institution; Dr Norman Friedman; Nathan Lipfert of the Maine Maritime Museum, who let me paw through all those marvellous tubes of plans from Bath Iron Works; Mr Willis of the Imperial War Museum; A J Francis of the Naval Historical Library; Commander John Alden, author of the classic Flush Decks and Four Pipes', Lieutenant-Commander Arnold Hague, whose book The Towns provides a fine overview of the careers of the 50 'flush-deckers' acquired from the USN by the RN in 1940. Without question, though, the author's greatest appreciation goes to his good friend John Lambert, who very graciously allowed him to use a large number of his excellent RN weapons drawings and generally made sure that material on the ship in RN service was made available. Readers of the 'Anatomy' series will recognize John as the author of the volumes on HMS Alliance and on the Fairmile 'D'MTB/MGB, as well as a prolific writer of journal and magazine articles and a provider of intricate scale drawings of many RN ships and weapons.
