Built as a replacement for the DH 4 as a forest fire patrol aircraft for the Royal Canadian Air Force, the Vigil was an all metal single seat patrol aircraft. It was overweight which impacted on it's overall performance and thus made it unsuitable for it's chosen role. Hence only one was built.

Never heard of this type before but by looking at the propeller,it has a British engine. Looking from behind in the direction of flight, direct drive British engines rotated anti-clockwise whereas most other engines rotated clockwise.
