Two built at Hamble for the light aircraft trials held at Lympne in 1923. Neither won, but the second aircraft with the Douglas engine broke the world altitude record for it's class with a height 13,480 ft on the 13th October 1923 over Lympne. No history exists currently as to what happened to each plane.
