    Very short thread this time!

    The Short Singapore entered service with the RAF in 1934 and only 37 were built in total due to pre-war development of more modern aircraft.

    The Singapore Mk III was a biplane seaplane with 4 x Rolls-Royce Kestrel engines and it’s primary role was air-sea rescue and ant-submarine work.

    The Singapore was armed with 3 x 7.7mm Lewis machine guns 1,100 lb of bombs.

    This example is a Singapore Mk III of 203 Squadron RAF 1940.

    Not many at all, I did not have much to work with in the end - these three are the 'leftovers' from a commission of 12 aircraft
