Given the industry's bottleneck in production capacity and Bristol's commitment to Blenheim and Beaufighter I doubt that the AM would have raised an order for a third P.13/36 contender
The Handley Page alternative Proposal.
Its discussed in Tony Buttler's Fighters and Bombers 1935-1950
Excellent. Great wee facility at FAST. Will your research go into print?Yes, I got a copy of Volkert's memo from a helpful friend and copies of the RAE reports from FAST.
Took a bit of persuading some people and a needless diversion of Sholto Douglas insisting on it being fitted with a tail turret!and of course DH were the company that finally gained approval to proceed.
Thanks Romone for an extraordinary posting. I am staggered at the excellent condition of this model, given its age. Brooklands has very little in the way of pre-1944 documents but I will ask my good friend who looks after the Hawker archive if he has any more.
