Can you imagine a lumbering Walrus departing the catapult of HMS Exeter at an alarmingly low speed? Though gunnery spotting was the main role, the little flying boats were probably most useful for flying in groceries to their mother ships. Photo presumably taken in a US port in 1938. Also see our other photo of K8343, visiting Vancouver, BC. Photo from: Naval History and Heritage Command
