* Strictly speaking, the records I was reviewing at the National Archives only listed aircraft type (simply given as Bristol) and country. No serials were listed.

However, in researching for serials S.4426 & 7 above to confirm aircraft type, I came across the e-book Weston-Super-Mare and the Aeroplane by Roger Dudley and Ted Johnson, which listed a number of Freighter deliveries. S.4429/30 were the only ones to have been delivered on these dates.
