The crossed UK and French flags represent the unique status of New Hebrides as a jointly ruled Anglo-French condominium that finally ended on independence in 1980 and the birth of Vanuatu. With no New Hebrides register, the Drover initially carried Fijian registration. In June 1966 -FED became VP-PAD when New Hebrides got its own block within the British Colonial system. It crashed at Tannu Island on October 22, 1966 with the loss of eight lives.

Shipped to the Australian War Memorial in 1946 for display but remained in storage until sold in 1963. Ended with Sid Marshall at Bankstown airport where it was assembled and exhibited in his hangar. After Marshall died, the aircraft was sold in the UK as G-SMIT. It was seized by Australian Customs after it was found not to have an export permit. The Bf109 went back into storage until 1987 when the Australian War Memorial acquired it (again). Displayed at the memorial from 2003 still wearing its original paintwork.

VH-ASM in Sid Marshall's compound on the edge of Bankstown airport. Marshall had a sentimental attachment to the aircraft because its registration were his initials. After the Anson was cancelled, he used -ASM on his Lockheed 10. The barbed-wire protected compound contained several dismantled aircraft removed from Bankstown airport. Access was rarely granted. -ASM was East-West Airlines' first aircraft and was bought by the airline for restoration as an exhibit. Displayed at Tamworth airport.
