The Transport Department was the name given to the logistical branch of the Royal Navy. At its highest level, it was managed by civil authorities.

Management of the warfighting effort was by nature an evolution, with various ports and cities receiving a Principal or Divisional Naval Transport Officer – positions often filled by a retired officer – as conditions required.

Director of Transports

Graeme Thompson, Esq., C.B. held this position in December 1918.
