Ref. No. 807. ORIGINAL PHOTO OF P-40Q
TAKEN BY CURTISS WRIGHT CORPORATION. Rear stamp and
writing states: “Photograph
from Curtiss Wright Corporation, Airplane Division, Buffalo 5, N.Y.
Public and Internal Relations Department. Plane Model –
P-40Q. Negative number 1205-X. Date taken 10/26/43. Date
processed May 28 1945".
Ref. No. 676. PORTRAIT OF
MORELAND. Circa 1920. Hand-tinted portrait photograph of Mr
Moreland taken at Sockburn in front of the ten cylinder radial engine
Caudron biplane. In writing on back is “Moreland. Former Canterbury
Aero Club 50th reunion. c66.” The portrait has been framed by the St.
Albans School of Art, 143 Cranford Street, St. Albans, Christchurch.
The portrait has been signed by “A. W. & H. Jackson, S. S. A.” The
inscription on the rear is probably incorrect. It is more likely that
Moreland was at the 50th reunion of the Canterbury Aviation Company. If
the reunion was 1966, this ties in with the fact that the CAC began in
1916 and trained 182 pilots by the end of WWI. The engine
in the background is a Le Rhone 90 h.p. 10-cylinder twin-row
Anzani radial. The engine is NOT a type fitted to later “air force”
aircraft and therefore confirms the portrait as being taken in front of
a Caudron aeroplane.
