Other British WWII's aircraft

Vickers Warwick

Twin-engined bomber of geodetic construction, basically a larger development of the Wellington. Obsolete as a bomber, it was used for reconaissance, SAR - Search And Rescue (carrying a lifeboat) and transport. Its career was brief, partly because of control problems, and partly because better four-engined aircraft were available.
