The Supermarine Walrus was a single-engined amphibious biplane that was used by the Royal Navy from the mid 1930s. The Walrus was of robust   construction to enable it to withstand both catapult take-offs and potential rough seas around the mother ship. This type was also used on aircraft carriers and was unique in that it was the first amphibious biplane with a retractable undercarriage. Its main task with the Royal Navy was sea reconnaissance, but it could also be used for air/sea rescue and liaison purposes. Many crews that had been shot down owed their lives to the Walrus.
