DH.82 Queen Bee - wireless controlled air target plane

Looking for the first operational use (month/year) of the DH.82 Queen Bee wireless controlled aerial target airplane, either RAF or Royal Navy (HMS Argus or FAA in general).
Flightglobal Archives first mention the type as early as 1935, but its use appears to have started before.

In the US there were the Culver PQ-8 and PQ-14 Cadet radio controlled types for the same target practice purposes.

Thanks fo any info.

Regards,

Leendert
