It was a surprise on my first visit to Camden to see a Walrus. Did not know such a rare aircraft existed in Australia. It was explained this was not a Walrus but its predecessor, the almost identical pre-World War II Seagull V. In 1969 VH-ALB was restored with an intention of flying it in the London-Sydney air race in December that year. It did not make the start line. Then on January 27, 1970, it crashed at Taree, New South Wales. The battered aircraft was sold to the RAF Museum, where it has been restored as a static display.

Seagull V (a variant of the Walrus) VH-ALB was damaged at the start of a planned flight to the UK. Ex RAAF A2-4, it is now displayed, fully restored, in the RAF Museum at Hendon.
