VH-UUC  de Havilland D.H.60GIII Moth                       (c/n  5084)


                                           Even on this lo-res image the -UUC can be just be discerned under the port wing on this photo,
                                           from the Kevin OReilly collection, taken by Wally Dalitz at Nhill, Victoria, probably around 1939.
                                           Moths with the inverted Gipsy Major engine were almost indistinguishable from the later Tiger Moth.
                                           -UUC was first registered in September 1935 to Miss F. Thompson of South Yarra, Victoria.    It
                                           was probably based at Essendon.  In September 1939 it was sold to the Aero Club of Broken Hill.
                                           Its CofA lapsed in April `1941 and it was stored until after the war.       I wonder why it wasn't
                                           impressed into service with the RAAF?   Too non standard?   Anyway, it was finally stricken from
                                           the register in October 1947.
