VH-UKM  de Havilland D.H.60G Gipsy Moth    (c.n 1070)


                            This photograph from the Geoff Goodall collection was originally a sepia tint.  In the interests of
                            conforming with the rest of the collection I have reduced it to a greyscale image.   The sporty
                            looking gentleman is, I believe, Mr. L.S.J. Smith of Guildford, WA, who imported the aircraft
                            in 1929.  Assuming he was then in his twenties, if still alive the venerable Mr. Smith would now
                            be pushing the century.    VH-UKM was sold to Wings, Ltd of Perth in November of 1930
                            and was destroyed in a crash at Leonora, WA in July of the following year ( a few months before
                            I was born!).
