When No43 is tasked to pick up an airman and bring him safely home, we do so. S/Ldr Reggie, flying the Walrus, was afraid the airman whould have wet feet in transfering him from the Walrus to the carrier in another dingy. With XMass nearby, S/Ldr Reggie took no risk.Here you see how...

It was a stroke of luck - easier than I expected to be honest because the Walrus is so slow, at the same time I dont know if I could pull it off again :shock: :lol:
