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

It just states that 'Army Pay Office, Winchester' was allocated to SE5A, F929 - no further information given
