                             John Hopton at Bankstown.  No 2 photo shows  -UTY at Parafield in 1940 just after its purchase by
                             Guinea Airways.  The third shot below sees it on an outback WA strip in the late 1930s while owned
                             by original owner George Lewis' Goldfields Airways of Kalgoorlie WA.     It had been imported from
                             England (ex G-ACCA) in June 1935.  Finally, at the foot of the page the Fox Moth is seen in wartime
                             camouflage while it was with Guinea Airways and maintaining restricted passenger services to SA towns.
