HMAS Albatross, later HMS Albatross was a seaplane tender of the Royal Australian Navy, which was later transferred to the Royal Navy and used as a repair ship

HMS Albatross

There was originally little need for a seaplane carrier in the Royal Navy, as several aircraft carriers were operational, and most warships from cruiser size up carried their own seaplanes

However, the loss of the aircraft carriers Courageous and Glorious early in World War II created scope for the ship’s use

HMS Albatross was assigned to Freetown in western Africa, where she and her aircraft were used for convoy escort, anti-submarine warfare, and air-sea rescue in the Atlantic
