On August 26th 1939 the Aéronautique Militaire requisitioned this Tipsy Bc with civil registration OO-WAL (c/n 510) to be operated by the newly formed "Estafette" squadron. Unfortunately this lovely machine was destroyed during the landing at Hannut on 10 May 1940, its pilot Reserve Lt. Eeman being wounded. On the picture taken during the severe winter of 1939/40 the old registration OO-WAL is still distinguishable under a layer of paint on the fuselage.
