Avro Autogyro in France 1940

Hi guys
I'm sure there's someone out there with the information I seek!

The Avro Rota was purchased by the RAF in the late 1930s (12 ordered) and a number of ex-civil machines were also requisitioned.

My research suggests that five of these were transferred to France in 1939 and were used until the German invasion May 1940. With which unit did they operate? I have information that three were destroyed (u/s) but two were flown back to England. Has anyone the date of the returning machines?

The French air force also operated a number of these - what happened to them?

Cheers
Brian
