Of the two that ended up in Egypt - I wonder if they were still flying when the Western Desert campaign was taking place during WW2?

A follow on to the Avro 639 Cabin Cadet, there were only 6 of these five seat cabin biplanes built. The first was delivered on 24th May 1934 and whilst one of two sold in Egypt was taken over by the Egyptian Army Air Force, the two remaining in Britain were impressed into service with the ATA at the beginning of WWII. One was written off in a fatal crash in 1941, whilst the other was struck off charge in 1942.
