The British Empire and its effect on Plymouth

Seaplane Tender at Cattedown

This shows a Seaplane Tender Mark I ST 201 on the Cattewater. You can see a Short Sunderland of No. 10 Squadron RAAF moored behind it. This would have been a common sight in the 1930s and 40s in Plymouth Sound. This picture is from RAAF 10 Squadron which operated there in World War Two.
