S.26 G-Class "Golden Hind"
Unit: Imperial Airways
Serial: G-AFCI (c/n.S871)

Short S.26s, intended to form Imperial Airways G-Class with names Golden Hind, Golden Horn and Golden Fleece, were all impressed for RAF and modified to S.26M military configuration before delivery as X8275, X8273 and X8274 respectively. Armament comprised eight 227 kg bombs under wings, two dorsal and one tail Boulton Paul four-gun turrets and internal stowage for flares and smoke floats. ASV radar fitted. Served with 119 Sqn from early 1941 and with No 10 Sqn, RAAF, flying stores to Gibraltar and Middle East, during which X8274 was lost. Remaining two returned to civilian status as G-AFCK and G-AFCI, used by BOAC with 40-seat layout between UK and Nigeria. G-AFCK lost January 1943; G-AFCI on other routes in UK and West Africa until war's end.
