Handley Page H.P.33/36 Hinaidi

The Hinaidi followed the Hyderabad into RAF service and 12 Mk Is and 33 Mk IIs were built, six of the Mk Is originally being ordered as Hyderabads but built as Hinaidis (not converted after completion). These served from 1930.

The RAF also received three examples of the troop-transport version known as the Clive (formerly Chitral). Each could accommodate 17 fully armed troops, or equivalent freight; folding seats being provided on both sides of the cabin and racks for the rifles. Two gun positions were retained (nose and dorsal). The first Clive was later civil registered G-ABYX and named Youth of Australia (subsequently Astra).

I have a picture of a Hinaidi with a "p" on the nose ,with my grandfather standing next to it. I have also seen pictures with various other letters does the letter signify anything.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
