Narrative:
DH.60 [Cirrus II] registered as G-EBQY [C of R 1366] 13.5.27 to Capt William R Bailey, Newport, Monmouthshire [but based at Stag Lane, Edgware, Middlesex]. C of A 1131 issued 13.5.27. Registered [C of R 1492] 26.9.27 to The De Havilland Aircraft Co Ltd, Stag Lane; probably operated by the DH School of Flying. Registration cancelled 31.1.29 as "withdrawn from use"; C of A current to 3.6.29 at the time.

[Note - there was a report of a DH Flying School DH.9J striking a house whilst low flying near East Grinstead 31.1.29, and then crashing into a frozen pond; the pilot Flying Officer A L Monger. No DH.9J can be identified, and it is thus possible that it was DH.60 G-EBQY]
