Is this aircraft the model used by Sir Charles Kingsford-Smith?

In 1931 it was one of these owned by Australian National Airways that vanished without trace (though relevant sightings just before the crash had been ignored-the ladies being deemed "hysterical") between Sydney and Melbourne. The remains weren't found until 1958, it had flown into an heavily timbered mountain side in dreadful weather-that developed after take off, the pilots having no warning. It carried no radio though this became mandatory for all passenger aircraft thereafter.
