Think not...

1068 is a phantasy military registration on the fuselage of this design.
It is not sure if it was a development of the Postjager...

It could be De Schelde's entry in a late 30's jachtkruiser competition for the Dutch MLA.

My dear Lark,

as I read from long time ago,this was a drawing-1068,but I think we can called it
Ontwerp 68,that's near to sense.

There's simply not enough information to identify the military Postjager as Ontwerp 68, or drawing-1068. The number 1068 might have been random, a fantasy number.

here is a two airplanes designed by Societe Royale de Constructions et de Machines de l'Escaut,they created
a pusher biplane and a pusher flying boat,I never heard about them before,maybe a Projects ?, and they called
Mouette & Moineau.

Those are Theo Slot's pre-war De Schelde Scheldemusch (= Moineau in French) and Scheldemeeuw (= Mouette in French). As you'll note, they feature in an 'all our yesterdays' column in Les Ailes of 1961, the original piece having been published there twenty five years earlier. I don't know of SRCME but if it was a French company maybe it acquired or intended to acquire a licence for their production (as did Robert Doig's Aircraft Constructions Ltd. in the UK - q.v. http://sussexhistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=13748.0) - although I suspect that SRCME is simply a French translation of the name of the NV Koninklijke Maatschappij De Schelde, the manufacturer of the Scheldemusch and Scheldemeeuw.

This page is from the 29th September 1961 issue #1845 of Les Ailes. The article starts with Le 1er Octobre 1936, on lisait dans Les Ailes... - this translates to On the 1st of October 1936, one could read in Les Ailes... .
Societe Royale de Constructions et de Machines de l'Escaut is French for Koninklijke Maatschappij De Schelde. This company started life as a shipbuilding company, for a while also building aircraft. As avion ancien remarks, these are indeed Theo Slot's Scheldemusch and Scheldemeeuw, presented as a retrospective of something published 25 years earlier. Theo Slot was a Dutchman working for a Dutch company, so these drawings are in the wrong thread.
