VH-UHC  Avro 594 Avian III                          (c/n   R3/AV/413)


                                     Nice shot above from the Frank Walters collection (via Geoff Goodall) of an Avian at Mascot
                                     in 1933.    Registered to the Civil Aviation Branch, Department of Defence at the time, it was
                                     on loan to the Aero Club of NSW.      The image immediately below came from the album of
Butler of Queensland.  It was taken "above Mitchell, Qld" in 1939.  The aircraft was
                                     probably on tour in the Archerfield area.      The photograph was taken (possibly by Barbara's
                                     mother) from an accompanying D.H.60G Moth.        The small shot at the foot of the page is
                                     from the E.A. Crome collection of the State Library of Australia and shows the Avian as G-AUHC
                                     in 1928 with starboard wing folded.   It was apparently engaged in the search for some lost hikers. 
                                     VH-UHC was only withdrawn from use as late as 1952
