                                       Some 96 of these lumbering transports was built for the RAF.  They did sterling work in all
                                       theaters of operation, but especially in the Middle East (Iraq, et al).   I suspect that K2344
                                       was a Mk V, the most numerous produced.   This version was powered by two 570 hp
                                       Napier Lion VIIB engines.   The Victoria was replaced, in the mid-1930s by the somewhat
                                       similar Valentia (not exactly "state of the art" even for 1935).  .
