Thought members might like to see the sole example of the Sprat fitted with floats and a shot of it in the air. Sources: Flight issue 5 1926 (airborne shot), Air Pictorial Issue 6 1957 (floats pic). To put the floats on merely necessitated the use of adjustable trestles, placed under the nose and rear of fuselage, and the once the aircraft was raised clear of the ground, the change could be made quickly.
