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

A Walrus at an airshow on the Candian west coast. Some searching reveals that K8343 / 769 and K8341 / 780 were on board the British cruiser Exeter which visited Victoria, BC in the summer of 1937. K8343 was apparently no longer assigned to the ship at the time of the Battle of the River Plate in December 1939. Photo by: James Crookall / City of Vancouver Archives
