This photo is absolutely superb! Considering that it was taken in the early 30's, it's quality wouldn't look out of place if it was taken 20 - 30 years later.

You hardly see any photos of the Hawker Horsley on the net, so it's rarity is even more of a bonus.

Here's a little bit more information about this aircraft; it was built in 1931-32 as a Hawker Horsley II (Torpedo Bomber) with a 665 hp Rolls-Royce Condor IIIB engine. It served in Singapore from September 1934 until June 1935 with 36 (TB) Squadron of the Royal Air Force with whom, it was coded V.
