The Eagle was an independent design by George Handasyde of the company known as British Klemm until 1935. Flt Lt Geoffrey Shaw participated in the London to Melbourne Air Race in this aircraft but had to give up after the undercarriage collapsed at Bushehr, Persia. G-ACVU crashed off Corsica in 1936.
