leased from 1944 until 1947 to Guinea Airways as a freighter. When
alloted to TAA
it became 'Phillip''.
Such were the poor quality of my early shots,
that even an enlargement of the
orignal neg (below) barely clearly shows the name.
This was at Essendon, 1953.
The blurry shot of it at the foot of the page is
that it shows -AEW in Guinea markings, prior to its being registerted
to the Australian
Commission for issuance to TAA. The
gorgeous cloud effect photo-
graph (no 3) below is from the
Henry W. Pryor
collection via Ron Cuskelly.
