VH-ADD  de Havilland D.H.60X Moth                    (c/n  920)


                                        This Moth was imported from Singapore in January 1940 by Jules Moxon of Brisbane.  Originally
                                        built as G-AADJ in floatplane configuration for the Singapore Flying Club, it was registered in the
                                        Colony upon arrival as VR-SAH.   Following a crash in Singapore Harbour on 25 October 1938
                                        it was rebuilt as VR-SAQ.   The above photo, (via The Collection p1234-1599), depicts it at Archer-
                                        field shortly after its arrival in Australia in January 1940.  It was registered to the Royal Queensland
                                        Aero Club.   Due to the war the club only held it for seven months, during which time it trained pilots
                                        for the RAAF, before being impressed into that service as A7-111.
