Narrative:
First registered (C of R 6119) on 26.7.35 as G-ADMU to Arthur Edward Henry Coltman, Braunstone, Leicestershire. (Who also built the aircraft). Written off (damaged beyond repair) 15.1.39 when crashed at Braunstone, Leicestershire

Registration G-ADMU cancelled 15.1.39 due to "destruction or permanent withdrawl from use of aircraft". The Air Ministry record card notes that the cancellation was as a result of its 1938 census return. ("Change of Ownership of Aircraft 1.1.39 (Census 1938)").

However, note that this implies the G-ADMU was actually written off at some point in 1938, but the Air Ministry only became aware of this at the end of 1938 or early 1939, when the were notified after the census return; hence the cancellation of the registration on 15.1.39, which could be some time after the actual date of the accident
