                                VH-TOR in 1962.   It is seen above at Bankstown in July 1966 in this photo by Bob Neate (via

                                Austerserve Ltd (the Auster dealership division of KSAS) from its original J/5B status.  It was
                                restored to the register in September 1966 in Austerserve's name and promptly sold.   Greg  Ban-
