Cross posting this link from a Yahoo group to a Flickr set with several images of the Golden Hind (inside & out) and a few other Shorts boats scattered through the 6 pages of photos.

The G.H. starts on page 4 and continues on to page 5, but do have a look around for the other goodies.

A very nice find indeed!

I have seen this photo before
http://www.flickr.com/photos/76971536@N08/7162175700/in/photostream/lightbox/
but not with that quality.

To me the "STOR" of CASTOR and the W of the registration looks retouched. Is this in fact another 'boat with a name starting with CA and a registration starting with G-ADU ?

Candidates (from a quick search in Brian's book) are:
G-ADUV CAMBRIA
G-ADUY CAPELLA
G-ADUX CASSIOPEIA
G-ADUU CAVALIER

The aerial masts on the wings is not something I remember having noticed before, but they are visible in the Life photos of CAVALIER but not on the photos of other 'boats I could check. Could this be a retouched photo of CAVALIER?

Cheers,

Anders

I've seen that overhead shot marked as Canopus G-ADHL...I assumed that it was probably really of Canopus and retouched to Castor

In the Tucks Imperial Airways album* there is a card of Capella but there is also a version of this photo as Canopus....difficult to know which is real...this time I find Capella more convincing

If you are using a PC or laptop, you can choose the BBCode posting option.

Hi Chris,
I'm sure you are right, I just wish I knew what you mean by 'choose the BBCode option'. I am on a laptop, and BBCode is not disabled so what do I do to get an image into a post?

When on Flickr, left click on the image you wish to post. That image then appears by itself. To the lower right of the image there are 4 icons. Click on the right-pointing arrow. A white window opens with a blue highlighted bar of code. Above that are four options. Click on the BBCode option. Then right-click on the blue code bar and choose COPY. Now come back here and PASTE it into the reply box.
