                                     Here's a super picture of a nicely liveried Tiger from the John Hopton collection taken in Singapore,
                                     circa 1960.   Originally A17-139, this aircraft sold at the big Commonwealth Disposals Commission
                                     sale at Western Junction, Launceston in May 1946 to Arthur Schutt who, at the time, was working
                                     out of Essendon.  It was ferried to Melbourne in a mass formation of ex RAAF Tigers and registered
                                     VH-ATO on 4 November 1946.    It was one of several machines included in a group of Tigers sold
                                      by Victorian & Interstate Airways to Malaya in May 1948.   It was subsequently registered VR-RBH
                                      to the Penang Flying Club.  In 1952 it moved south and was sold to the Royal Singapore Flying Club
                                      becoming VR-SDP based at Kallang.    It was withdrawn from use in 1961 and stricken from the
                                      Singapore register on 25 October 1961 of that year
