    Well done Dave, the plan worked out then! Oh and thank you for the Skylark Canopy, I picked it up a few weeks ago - the great Skylark rebuild doth continue!

    Soggy - many thanks for the photo. Googling WD & HO Wills produces a "History of WD & HO Wills" apparently by Dave Napier if the URL is correct. That shows a logo comprising a stylised diamond shaped tobacco leaf superimposed on a large W, all in gold. It certainly resembles the logo on the fin in the photo. If you have the time can you have a look at that website & let me know if it jogs a memory or two?

    If it's the one, then your photo gives the size and position, which is great. And the rudder needs to be blue?

    That's wonderful news, and well done to you and all concerned, fair warms my heart it do.

    I have no more images of my own, but found this one on the Vintage Gliding Facebook page, which is unfortunately indistinct and remote, but does show the Wills logo. I readily admit to having no permission to publish this, so I apologise to the owner who I hope may be not upset in view of the purpose.

    Thank you for the photoes of her firet flight after restoration, which are an absolute delight to me:

    started a topic Soggy - Your Swallow flies again!

    Soggy - Your Swallow flies again!

    Mr Soggy - Just to let you know, the BGA issued us a Certificate of Airworthiness last week so I test flew Swallow BZL today - very nice too, even in non-soaring conditions. It's been a while since I last flew a glider with a decent rate of roll!

    I'll PM a couple of pictures.

    Do you by any chance have a colour photo of the glider showing the Wills logo on the fin? I'd like to reproduce it

    a) Because of historical correctness

    b) Because of its present-day political incorrectness!

    cheers
    Dave
