    Canopies For ID

    A friend has found these being used as cloches on an allotment, can anyone ID and are they worth saving? ta

    Harvard, worth saving of course

    The one nearest looks like the front cockpitcanopy and the next looks like to middle (solid) section

    Make sure he has a look round, is that two more at the back?

    Don't forget to look in the shed - the fuselage and wings are in there!

    Reminds me in around 1987 I found a stack of Harvard canopy's in a garden near me, I was only 16 at the time, saved one but later passed it on, some years later they were all gone. Must have been a lot saved from the scrap man.

    Postwar examples - either T-6G or Mk.IVs. I think it was the Mk.IVs that did without the central frame at the top, but no doubt someone else will know for sure.
