Arthur, I believe the one at Kat/Neg from a colour slide of 1959 is G-AGOB, there is also a B&W photo on the Misc pages taken at Lyneham c1954/55 Scottish Aviation index # G-AMUL. this crashed in 1956 near London losing all on board.

John thanks for sharing these pictures with us. Good to see the RNZAF Bristol Freighter and Hastings! The 'French Biplane' you refer to in your album named 'Modern and not so Modern Aircraft' is in fact a Scouting Experimental SE5A, which is British.

Regards,

Kermie ;)
