A Reconciliation of Short's Constructor's Numbers with Actual and Reported Naval Serials.

This Appendix has been contributed by Gordon Bruce and summarises his researches over many years into Shorts archives, the Public Record Office and other sources. Linkage of c/n's to Naval serials and Type descriptions are taken from direct references in Shorts Order Book (which was lost for many years) and from contemporary Shorts written records unless shown otherwise by the use of brackets. In most of the bracketed cases, however, linkage can be made by the use of the use of other sources. The reference to H M Lists are to the PRO Lists of H M Naval Aircraft Built, Building and under Repair (noting that the historical parts of the March 1918 List are not entirely reliable).
