VH-TSD (1)  de Havilland D.H.82A Tiger Moth                  (c/n DHA325)


                                        The above shot, from the Geoff Goodall collection, is the only image gleaned of the this Tiger
                                        bearing the first VH-TSD rego.  The photo was taken at Parafield in 1965 when a storage hut
                                        was being cleared out.   Ex A17-306, this Tiger was one of a large number of Tiger Moths sold
                                        by the Commonwealth Disposals Commission at Western Junction, Launceston after the war
                                        and ferried in ragged formations to the mainland.   However c/n 325 Tiger remained in Tasmania
                                        to be registered VH-APK with the Tasmanian Aero Club in October 1950.     It later became
                                        VH-SSM with Super Spread Aviation at Moorabbin before being purchased by Roger Freeman
                                        of Adelaide in January 1959 when he started Trojan Aerial Spraying Co. It was cancelled from
                                        the register in October 1961 as 'withdrawn from service'.
