Hard to be sure of the serial of this aircraft but a different angle shows "01" were the last two numbers of the serial on the fuselage while the first number on the rudder appears to be "4". F4401 was operated by 20 Sqn in what was then known at the North West Frontier of India. There are two Shinki bridges, Upper and Lower. The Upper Shinki is the one that was known simply as Shinki at the time. While there is now a modern bridge, an old bridge of similar construction to the one in the photo still stands nearby. The Miranshah RAF base used by 20 Sqn was 30km to the west.

Festooned with lights and tinsel as a centrepiece to Christmas celebration, this F2B was a World War I production aircraft rebuilt for use by the postwar RAF. Where this celebration took place is not known but maybe Karachi (Drigh Road) or Lahore given it is in a building of some substance. The year is unknown too.

Taken from 6000 feet. Mosul airport is one of the oldest in the Middle East. It was an RAF base from at least 1920. It has since served as an Iraqi air force base and the city's international airport.

G-EBKU was the second prototype Moth. Flown to what was then British India by Bernard Leete who then undertook a series of demonstrations and joy flights. Hit wires on landing at Lahore injuring himself and his passenger. G-EBKU written off. This is believed to have occurred at the RAF base as Lahore's first civil airport was still three years in the future. The base, which was taken over by the Pakistan air force, became the main civil airport in 1960.
