Narrative:
First registered [C of R 8986] on 13.4.39 as G-AFNY to Captain The Hon Lionel John Clive Lambart, DSO, RN, Sheraton, Wiltshire (aircraft based at Bristol Airport, Whitchurch, Bristol, Gloucestershire).

Withdrawn from use and stored at HMS Daedalus, Lee on Solent Naval Air Station, Hampshire from 4.9.39 when all private civilian flying was prohibited due to the outbreak of WWII.

Written off (destroyed) 18.840; destroyed by enemy action (air raid) on HMS Daedalus, Lee on Solent Naval Air Station, Hampshire. Two fatalities were sustained as a result of the raid, which struck the hangar that G-AFNY was parked in:

COOKE, Bernard A, Naval Airman, FAA/FX 76323, bombing, DOW (Died of Wounds Sustained)
MANN, Richard F, Leading Air Fitter (A), FAA/FX 76046, died as a result of enemy action

Registration G-AFNY cancelled by the Air Ministry 12.11.45 as a result of the 1945 census by the Air Ministry into the status of all pre-war aircraft, hence "destruction or permanent withdrawl from use of aircraft 12.11.45 (Census 1945)".
