 I photographed the rebuild of this aircraft in the workshop of Rodi Morgan at Tangmere in the 1970s. It started as an incomplete wreck after storage during the war years. The rebuild took hundreds of hours and I watched every stage. My photos of the work were all on black and white film in those days. Rodi finally flew it at Lasham some years before he died. I was delighted to see it flying at Storrington years later. I hope to see it in the air again sometime and to do some more photos of it. Dave Nicholls
