A Supermarine Walrus in testing, circa 1938. They were carried by most British battleships and cruisers during the Second World War, providing an independent reconnaissance asset. Ungainly as they were these things were actually the first British aircraft to enter service with a fully retractable main undercarriage, completely enclosed crew accommodation and an all-metal fuselage.
