I  mention that is listed in Gifts of War, but you or any one have a copy of what they say?

If some one could check out the following I would appreciate it very much.

I found this photograph of F929 with the inscription “Army Pay Office Winchester”.  I have checked Air Britain’s SE5A File and rather confusingly the have a photo of the aeroplane  with a caption saying it was with 29 Sqn at Bickendorf in 1919, and in the serials listing the have it as 92 Sqn (typo here) and then 8 AAP Lympne.  So was it attached to the Army Pay Office as a hack, note the over wing gun has been removed although the mount and trigger mechanism remain.  If any one has a copy of Gifts of War - 'Presentation Aircraft' in Two World Wars by Henry Boot and Ray Sturtivant could they check to see if it is listed?

 

Thanks

 

HuckJ
