Source needed - this seems to be a key naval term
Dear wikipedians: this seems to be an important naval term, but is totally unsourced. I noticed that there is a "Category:Auxiliary ships" and another very similar "Category:Service vessels". I tried to find online a definition to ascertain which one is correct, the other can be merged into it, but the only "encyclopedic definition" I found was this one in Wikipedia. Can anyone please help resolving this by providing a verifiable source for this definition? Thanks & regards, DPdH (talk) 02:06, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
