Re: Walrus L2277

Quick answer is from AB L1000 - N9999.
L2277 - 714 - To Admiralty 24.5.39 - Rtd RAF 4.45 - NFT.
Not listed though in FAA Aircraft 1939-1945.
L2276 isn' t either.

Re: Walrus L2277

Just drawing the profile of a Supermarine Walrus!

"In 1936 orders for more aircraft were placed by Air Ministry to Spec 37/36, numbered K 8338 to K 8345; L 2169 to L 2336" etc.
