Photo from David Varvel: "You may be interested in the attached photo. I think it is also of the Seabird but I am not sure if it is the one which tried to make the flight to Australia and crashed or the one before it which did the London to Madrid flight. Unfortunately it is a head on shot which does not show the registration. I had this photo in my father's collection and he is in the photo (in the white shirt on the left). Unfortunately he did not tell any of us what part he had in the story of the plane. I was looking in the photo you had of the people who built it to see if he would be in that also but the image is not so good and I could not be sure if he was in it. I have checked this with the other few photos of the plane and even though it it head on without the cowling I think it is one of the Seabirds. On the photo from my father he had written on the back "Napier Engine" which was right for that plane. Unfortunately he did not write anything else."
Photo from James Holland: Vickers Viking N157. I have two photographs of it in a photo album that belonged to my grandfather who served in the RAF. I am certain that the photos were taken in Iraq.
