c/no 7043 To Netherlands with CofA 4241 issued 29.3.34 (see note). Registered as PH-HSC 23.4.34 to H.L. Schaper Claus, Schiphol. Registered as PH-HJP [C of R 199] 27.11.35 to H.J.P van Heek, Twente.

On 17.10.39 "Invited by soldiers in use " (probably another way of stating that it was impressed into military service) This did not, however, mean that the registration PH-HJP in the NLR was cancelled, which was retained. Later (by early 1940) impressed into service with the LuchtvaartAfdeeling (LVA) as 964

On 10.5.40 Destroyed at Ypenburg AFB, Leidschenveen-Ypenburg, Zuid-Holland in an air raid. On 27.11.41 Proof of Registration PH-HJP expired, and registration cancelled

Note: Both DH records and ARB CofA records show c/no 7043 being F-AMXQ issued to Georges Descamps 29.3.34. French records show F-AMXQ as being c/no 7006, ex G-ACKJ, which DH records show as sold to A Germain 12.33. Probably c/no 7043 was allotted to Descamps, but the registration was not taken up and replaced by second-hand c/no. 7006.
