VH-BRE  Short S25V Sandringham 4      (c/n  SH.32C)

                               A rather uncontrasty shot taken at Rose Bay Flying Boat Base, in Sydney in 1953, although the name
                               "Pacific Chieftain" can be discerned.   This Sandringham came from Qantas (VH-EBX) although it had
                               also, like the other Sandringhams in the Ansett Flying Boat Services fleet, been operated in New Zealand
                               (as ZK-AMD).   VH-BRE was lost when it sank at anchor in a hurricane at Lord Howe Island in 1963.
