Stephane,

Another addition.  This comes from Flight 18th Feb 1943.
It is a shortened 24-seat version of the 35-seat GAL 40

Thanks for the additions.

Unfortunately I had locked the other topic so that only I could add everyone's additions to it, but being no longer a moderator, it's now out of my reach.

I can ask a moderator to unlock it of course, but the "danger" is that people would now post their additions and comments there and take away the "definitive" aspect of that topic, the way it was meant to be... (just as a reminder: this here topic was to discuss GAL designations, add comments, suggestions, questions, etc. and the other topic was meant as a "stable" resource that could be updated from new info provided here but not expanded by new posts...).

Perhaps they could unlock it for a few hours to give you the opportunity to make updates, or make the updates for you.

Well an illustration of the GAL.53 was missing from the Definitive Index, which is why I posted it here

The design you show is from a patent, I am not sure it was ever a full, and is in the joint names of Hill and Blackburn and General Aircraft. There are three or four other patents. I don't think it should be included in the GAL list
