Thanks, hesham.  One comment...it would be useful to include the year of publication for some of these to give an idea of the context.  Cheers, Matthew

Good clue ! That could mean, that it principally was a Spanish design, as Morocco was
divided into a Spanish and a French protectorate then. It seems more probable to me,
that Emile Hennion was working in the French part, nevertheless it's not certain, of course.
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Hi,


as discovered by my dear Apophenia,the Louis Peyret designed a light seaplane
trainer biplane in 1924,powered at first by one 16 hp 4-cyl Sergant and replaced
by 45 hp Anzani 6 engine.

Émile Hennion was working in Casablanca, in the French protectorate.
