Written off 10.2.29: crashed at Lumloch Colliery, near Lenzie, Dumbarton, Scotland. According to a contemporary report in "Flight" magazine (issue dated 21.2.29 page 140 - see link #2):

"In place of the usual diatribe against adverse weather, our report this week is concerned with misfortune of much greater import. On Sunday afternoon, Mr. F. W. Murray, accompanied by Mr. A. Russell as passenger, crashed very badly in a field on the outskirts of Lenzie, both being injured, Mr. Russell rather severely. The sympathy of the Club goes to both and we wish them a very speedy and complete recovery. The machine involved, G-EBVT, appears to be completely written off."

C of A and registration cancelled by the Civil Aviation Authority 9.1.30 due to "destruction or permanent withdrawl from use of aircraft"
