VH-UJH  de Havilland D.H.60G Gipsy Moth            (c/n  983)


                                 Thus far I have been unable to glean any uncropped shots of this aircraft.      The above photo is
                                 from the M.D. Cobcroft collection, whilst the lower two are from the Fairfax archives, via the NLA.
                                 The picture above shows Miss Irene Dean-Williams (center), her mother, Mrs. Selina Mathilda
                                 Dean-Williams and Harry "Cannonball" Baker, Miss Dean-Williams' West Australia Aero Club
                                 flying instructor.  The shot was probably taken at Tammin, W.A. on 1 May 1932 where Irene had
                                 just landed in her Moth after completing a trans-Australian solo record breaking flight for a woman
                                 aviator.   The Fairfax archives shots below were taken on 23 April 1932, probably at Adelaide and
                                 possibly while she was positioning for the record flight.      VH-UJH had been sold to her by Baker
                                 Aviation Co in March of 1932.         Her mother had been flown out from Maylands to meet her by
                                 Mr. Baker in a club Moth.      Due to bad weather she did not complete her solo flight to Maylands
                                 until the following day.         'Berlei', manufacturers of women's undergarments, were her sponsor.
                                 -UJH became a RACWA club aircraft itself in 1937 and was then sold to a private party in Kalgoorlie
                                 before passing to the Western Australian Goldfields Aero Club, also of that city.  It was impressed into
                                 service during WW II as A7-77.
