The Walrus (as it was known in RAF service) amphibian formed a vital part of the British Air-Sea Rescue service during WW2. Slow and ungainly, the Walrus was nevertheless a most welcome sight for more than 7500 allied airmen who were saved from the sea after they had been forced to 'ditch'. Perhaps surprisingly, it was the first British squadron service aircraft to have a fully retractable main undercarriage and a completely glazed cockpit.
