The images above and at the foot of the page are from the Allan Betteridge collection, via
                                            via the CAHS. The top photo looks like one taken from the CofA.      Photos 2 below is
                                            courtesy of the National
Library of Australia and is from the Horrie Miller collection.
                                            Photo no 3 below was gleaned by Graeme Parsons from the Adelaide Advertiser for
                                            28 November 1927 and was published on the occasion of the official opening of the
                                            Aero Club at Parafield..  G-AUAP was one of several such machines assigned to the
                                            South Australia section of the Australian Aero Club by the Civil Aviation Branch, Dept
                                            of Defence.  Unfortunately this one was not on the club strength for long, since it crashed
                                            performing  low aerobatics over the airfield on 11 March 1928.   Clearly, as seen at the
                                            photo below, it was damaged beyond repair.
