     “...the American Lockheed Hudson, effectively a military version of the Lockheed 14 Electra which had been developed in 1938 in response to a British specification. The Royal Air Force were at that time searching for a naval reconnaissance plane to be used by Coastal Command and after much hesitation they had turned to the American aircraft industry.”
     -- The Rand McNally Encyclopedia of Military Aircraft, 1980
