I spoke before about the designer Rene Tampier,he created the T.1,a
folding-wing roadable biplane in 1921,he continued by T.2 a small two-
seat light aircraft powered by one Clerget engine,T.3 was a two-seat
fighter powered by one Hispano-Suiza engine,T.4 was two-seat army
recce aircraft to A.2 competition,powered by one Hispano-Suiza two-
cylinder auxiliary engine,T.6 was a multi-seat combat or heavy bomber biplane,may be intended to compete Bleriot Bl-127,Avimeta Av.121 and
Schneider Sch.10M.

It's TAMPIER (not TAMPLER), toura... and yes, it was the T.1, as already seen in this other picture of the same aircraft headed for the Grand Palais exhibit, earlier in this page: http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,21109.msg181132.html#msg181132

From,Le_Génie_civil___revue_[...]_bpt6k6487729f,the T-5;

3 ° The two-seater plane with folding wings, type T-5. This airplane has been specially designed from the point of view of its use in the navy: its very small dimensions allow it to be easily installed in a boat deck.

You might be interested to know that René Tampier moved to Canada during the Second World War, where he founded, in 1940, Montréal-based Bloctube Controls of Canada, seemingly a subsidiary of British-based Bloctube Controls, a firm founded around 1937. Born in Bordeaux in 1885, Tampier died of a brain hemorrhage while sailing his dinghy in a regatta, in the Laurentides region of Québec, in August 1944.

Be safe.

You might be interested to know that René Tampier moved to Canada during the Second World War, where he founded, in 1940, Montréal-based Bloctube Controls of Canada, seemingly a subsidiary of British-based Bloctube Controls, a firm founded around 1937. Born in Bordeaux in 1885, Tampier died if a brain hemorrhage while sailing his dinghy in a regatta, in the Laurentides region of Québec, in August 1944.

The Bloctube name dated back to before WWI and eventually had works in Paris, Lyon, Turin, and London. In Britain, the name was first associated with the Bloctube Carburettors Works in Putney which advertised René Tampier as "Inventor and Patentee". By 1939, "R. Tampier" was listed as being at the Cricklewood Broadway Works (London, N.W.2) and Bloctube Controls Ltd. in Hammersmith. A Bloctube advertising tag-line became "Tampier Products of Quality".

During the war, Bloctube Controls Ltd. expanded to (or relocated to?) Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. As a wartime supplier, Bloctube Controls Ltd. received the Manufacturer Code 'TAM' in honour of Tampier. However, by that time, René Tampier himself would have left for Québec. So, Bloctube Controls of Canada, Ltd. was obviously a subsidiary of Bloctube Controls Ltd.

Upon the death of René Tampier, the Dominion government appointed a controller. [1] Bloctube was mentioned at least twice in the correspondence of PM Mackenzie King. Doubtless, that was because Bloctube Controls of Canada, Ltd. was supplying main flying controls to Victory Aircraft for Lancaster B.Mk.X bombers. Bloctube Controls of Canada, Ltd. survived Tampier's demise, moving from Bordeaux St. to St. Lawrence Blvd. Government controllers remained in place until at least 1947. [2]

__________________________


[1] Clayton F. Elderkin - Canada's Inspector-General of Banks (1944-1966) was appointed Controller of Bloctube Controls of Canada, Ltd.'s business interests by Order in Council P.C. 7037, 08 September, 1944.

[2] The appointment of Norman Scott as Controller was revoked on 07 January 1947 by Order in Council P.C. 55.
