Many of these postwar logistic challenges were difficult to address because there was limited precedent and scarce resources available to resolve them. The Royal Navy in particular faced a pressing need to determine postwar whether the way forward was to have more afloat support or simply revert to prewar strategies using permanent bases. This chapter looks at the ramifications for choosing either afloat support or permanent bases, how each choice affected the establishment of appropriate endurance levels for warships, and the subsequent impact this had on auxiliary ship design.

Keywords:   Royal Navy, afloat support, World War, permanent bases, warships, auxiliary ship design
