VH-UMP  Simmonds Spartan                              (c/n 28)


                                  This Spartan was registered to Bishop and O'Sullivan Aircraft Service of Brisbane in December
                                  of 1929.    The inscription on the nose reads 'Sky Travel', while the under-the-top-wing advert
                                  is for 'Goldenia Tea'   Two years later its CofA lapsed and, so far as I can tell, was never renewed,
                                  which indicates it rotted away in a hangar somewhere.  The above image is courtesy of the John
