Lysander Mk.I
Unit: 1 Army Cooperation Sqn, REAF
Serial: Y518

In September of 1939, the British government cancelled the Estonian contracts. It need be noted that no Westland Lysanders were ever delivered to Estonia. The deposit was returned to the Estonian government in full during the middle of September 1939. Of interest to note is that in 1940, nine aircraft of the Lysander Mk. I's of the Estonian order were apparently redirected to Finland. One of Estonia's Lysanders was redirected to the Royal Egyptian Air Force (REAF).

In 1939, the newly established Royal Egyptian Air Force took possession of 18 Westland Lysander Mk. I aircraft; contract number 555425 applying. Each aircraft was valued at 5.600 British Pounds Sterling each. These airplanes were marked as Y-500 to Y-517 by the REAF. The first of these airplanes flew on 06 October 1939; the last Lysander of this order was completed on 15 December 1939.

In 1940, the British RAF transferred one additional Westland Lysander Mk. I and one Mk. III Lysander to the REAF - the Mk. I Lysander was apparently one of the ex-Estonian contract machines. In total, Egypt operated 20 Westland Lysander airplanes. The Mk. I Lysander transferred to Egypt in 1940 carried the s/n of R-2650, and was registered with the Royal Air Ministry. During its service with the REAF, R-2650 carried the s/n of Y-518.

The Egyptian Lysanders served with the 1 (Army Cooperation) Squadron of the REAF. Their main base of operations from 1940 to 1943 was at Almaza, Egypt. After that date, the Egyptian Lysanders served as target towing (TT) aircraft, with the same squadron.
