Title: Supermarine Walrus

The Supermarine Walrus first flew in 1935. Initially designed to be carried on warships for reconnaissance, the aircraft was mainly used for air-sea rescue purposes. It was the first operational RAF aircraft to incorporate retractable undercarriage and an enclosed crew cockpit. 740 examples were built in two main versions, the Mk 1 with a metal fuselage and the Mk 2 with a wooden fuselage.

To maximise value, this title contains the Servicing and Descriptive Manual (AP Volume One) for the Walrus (which was too early to have a Pilot’s Manual) plus the flight manual (titled Pilot’s Notes) for the later Sea Otter. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retains any colour pages.



This title contains:

  • RAF Servicing and Descriptive Handbook for the Supermarine Walrus I and II (Amphibian). AP 1515A and B Volume One, 2nd Edition dated December 1937, with approx 289 pages. (This aircraft pre-dated separate Pilots Notes.)
  • RAF Pilot’s Notes for the Supermarine Sea Otter I, AP 2209A & B-PN, dated November 1944, with approx 32 pages.
