Well, I've been frantically searching my references and not only
can I not find any photos of a Pup on floats, I can't find any
reference that such an animal ever existed. Skid undercarriages,
jettisonable undercarriages, Pups with floatation bags, but
no floats.

Like everyone else, I just *know* that I saw a reference to a
Pup floatplane somewhere but after leafing through books for
a day, I'm beginning to think that maybe I was remembering the
Sopwith Baby and not the Pup. Did anyone come across a
reference which clearly indicated that there was such a thing
as a floatplane Pup? Posting that reference would be appreciated.

Cheers, Bill
