Does anyone have a list of the serial numbers used on RAF pinnaces ?
 
I have found photos on the web of 60' GS pinnaces (low back/no turrets) with the following serials : 33, 62, 1198, 1367 & 1418
 
Similarly photos of 60' ASR pinnaces (high back with/without turrets) :
1222, 1234, 1244, 1250, 1262, 1288 & 1320
 
These seemed to have been replaced by the type on display at Hendon (low back/no turrets). At first I thought that only the forward superstructure was different to the above craft, but now I think that the hull was not the same either (particularly around the bow) :
1371, 1372, 1374, 1379, 1380, 1380, 1382, 1383, 1385, 1386, 1387, 1388, 1391 & 1392
 
Did these latter pinnaces have a particular name ? And who made them ?
Maybe there's even a publication out there with all the details ?
