    Default 'Walter' signals equipment for RAF Coastal Command types

    According to an August 1944 US Navy Department intelligence report, a variety of Coastal Command types, including Beaufighters, Mosquitos, Wellingtons, Catalinas, Sunderlands, Fortresses and Liberators were to be fitted with 'Walter' signals equipment under an Air Staff requirement.

    Have looked online to no avail. Does anyone know what this equipment was?

    TIA.

    Thanks, Pete.

    Turns out Walter was a rescue transmitter that was ultimately stowed in the 'K' dinghy pack.
