The reputation of the Supermarine company was built on their ability to design and produce effective and reliable marine and amphibious aircraft for civilian and military use. The Walrus was a perfect example of their expertise and underlined the strength of the aircraft by performing a loop at the 1933 Hendon Air Pageant, to the astonishment of the massed ranks of spectators.

Colour and contents of products may vary from those illustrated

Supermarine built their reputation on the design and production of effective seaplanes and amphibious aircraft and although these may not have possessed the aesthetic appeal of the later Spitfire, many a Spitfire pilot would be pleased to see an approaching Walrus if combat had forced them to take a dip in the English Channel.
