This a great site to research aircrafr serial number relating to Walrus aircraft -


Walrus I - Serial Number K8345. Crashed 30th November 1937. LAC Norman Stewart Burns was killed in this crash. His grave is shown on the right. This was erected by the ships company of HMS London.
HMS London did carry one Walrus & this aircraft may have belonged to this ship. It was involved in evacuating civilians from Spain during the Spanish civil war around this time.
It is interesting that this aircraft was the last Walrus to be built at Woolston, UK.
