Hawker Horsley     S1452


                                  The Horsley was built to Air Ministry Spec 26/23 and beat out, in fact, the Bristol Berkeley, the
                                  Westland Yeovil and the Handley Page Handcross for the honors in receiving a production con-
                                  tract.  The Spec originally called for a two seat bomber capable of hauling a 500 lb bomb or tor-
                                  pedo for 1,200 miles, although production Horsleys were often called on to load a 1,500 lb bomb
                                  or torpedo over shorter ranges.. Since the example above is carrying an "S" serial number I assume
                                  that  it was a Fleet Air Arm torpedo bomber and may have originally been on floats.
