Mount Batten was the location of a flying boat station and Royal Air Force Base, during the years 1913 until 1986. it was there that the United States Curtis Flying Boat NC 4 came ashore, following the first successful airborne crossing of the Atlantic Ocean. Many classes of flying boat were to use this base, the best known during World War II being the Shorts LTD. of Belfast long distance ocean reconnaissance Sunderlands. Meanwhile, during the 1930's, T.E.Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) served there as an ordinary aircraftsman under the alias of Shaw, at a time when he had shunned his earlier public fame as Lawrence.
