Re: British Second-Line Aircraft lost in France Sept. 1939 - June 1940.

I have this photo in my collection and I believe that it shows two Cierva Autogyros in a wrecked hanger.

I have posted this after reading at the start of this thread "It has been suggested that several of these autogyros were lost or abandoned in France during May or June 1940. However there seems to be no evidence to support this belief, either from the individual histories in the Air-Britain serial registers, nor from photographs or published works"

However, as I do not know where this was taken or indeed who owned the Autogyros it may not help to prove or disprove the above statement!

The French were much larger users of this type, so I suggest this is likelier to show some of their examples.
