Handley-Page Hopesworth

1930's, Britain, by Arthur, Military@drawnpatrol
Handley -Page Hopesworth Hp 1006

Many of the details surrounding this rare aircraft have beeen lost through the passage of time.
Not much is known about the Hopesworth, except of course for the version depicted here.
This was the only apparent account of a Hopesworth, registered as wh-xpp354n,
which was used to fly the Essex-Liverpool mail run during the war.
Heavilly disguised in full military regalia,the Hopesworth, had to protect itself and its crew from
public humiliation and jeering.
