VH-BGU (1)  Auster III                                             (c/n  363)

                                      Built as Taylorcraft Auster III MZ249, this aircraft was shipped out to Australia in November   
                                      1944.  It was used mainly in Borneo until the cessation of hostilities.  It was offered for disposal
                                      in 1947 although was not registered until 1949.  In 1952 it was acquired by the Illawarra Flying
                                      Club and re-registered VH-FAE.  I have lost thr provenance of my blurred print above, but
                                      suspect that it was taken at Bankstown, circa 1948.
