Photo Comment

Envisioned by Westland as a development of their successful Wapiti, the Wallace was rapidly overtaken by aeronautical progress, eventually only finding a role as a trainer or target tug. This example lay abandoned at Cranwell for thirty years and fell into disrepair. Fortunately, restoration was begun in 1987 and she is now on display at the RAF Museum.
