Quite correct Tom although the production model was called H.232/2 (or NC.232/2). Main difference was the retractable landing gear compared with the prototypes, where it was fixed.

If you look carefully on the rudder it should say
Hanriot
H232
Construction
SNCAC
No 25

It is quite a remarkable photo since I don't believe our French friends have a fate for this particular individual. Since it looks quite undamaged, we can, with a high percentage of probability, say it was captured.

How certain is your ID of Le Bourget Tom? No 25 is known to have been delivered to EAA.301 in 1940, but it seems all official trace ends there.
