{detailed description}The development and operational history of one of the most versatile aeroplanes ever built, the Vickers Supermarine Walrus
Designed by R. J. Mitchell, famous for the immortal Spitfire and the Schneider Trophy winners of the early '30s, its service life must be amongst the longest and it certainly performed a greater variety of military tasks in World War II than any other aircraft.
A true amphibian, it was catapulted from ships, lurched aloft off breaking seas or staggered into the air from jungle strips, landed on lagoons, icefloes and scrubland; it dive bombed, reconnoitred, fought and achieved an astonishing record of rescue work.
This lively tribute to the old "Shagbat" by a man who is not only an accomplished writer but actually flew them himself for eight years and commanded 700 Squadron, will warm the hearts of service men and ex-service men throughout the world who remember with real affection this "noisy old crate."

The jacket picture shows H.M.A.S. SYDNEY catapulting her aircraft in Alexandria harbour
