Thank you for the link but i could not find a th RN type stanchions. Doesn't look as though it is going to be easy or soon that i shall acquire any.

What I did notice was that others are asking the same question on various forums.  So I am not alone in my quest.

Hi Toby

What is the difference between RN type stanchions and "ordinary" ones?

 The difference is in the layout / position of the rails.

If you take a three- hole stanchion the distance between the deck and first rail and the first rail and the second rail are the same. Then the distance between the second and top rail  is greater.

I will attach a photo of my 1/96 scale type.

Although the HMS Bulldog is an off- shore/ survey vessel and not a warship, I noticed from photographs that the railings it had were the RN type and not the general equally- spaced three-ball stanchions.

I don't have this problem with the RN tug Perseverance.... phew!
