Morning David.

Stick to Europe with this one - and to limit the searches a little, I've moved in to western Europe this time

Watkinson Dingbat?
It is indeed Graeme - the one off Dingbat from 1938, last flown in 1975 when it sadly crashed. Now under restoration in Southampton.

Here it is at the PFA Rally in Sywell in 1974, not my photo, but its the one and only time I saw it:

Definitely the Delfin mate.

Your control.

(Thanks for the river photo - although I first thought it said Night****. )

Logging off - back later hopefully...

Edit...

if it's correct it will have to be an OH.
Open House.
