GTO (?) 500

Kestrel, surely, but which one?

GTO 500 gives Nottinghamshire, 1940. DTO could make more sense - March-May 37, or maybe DTC or DTD - both Lancashire, mid-38 or CTC/CTD ditto mid-late 37. imdb gives RAF Upwood, Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire as the airfield which doesn't help.

Other options are 8/90, and Big Four. (S & G doubt any 8/90 Kestrels built.)

Total 8/90 production may only have been 25 according to Rob Malpas 2019 picture book but his website says 35 Adelphis and 2 Kestrels. Whichever, I think we can disregard 8/90 here. Big Four seems a mess of names/models way above my paygrade to attempt to understand.

DTO 500 is referenced as a 1937 12/4 Kestrel Sprite in p.314 of 'As Old as the Industry' (1982), by D.G. Styles. The 'Sprite' was the highest trim-level available on selected 12/4 models, following the queues of the eponymous sporting two-seaters - with high-performance tweaks and a rev-counter.

DTO 500 was broken up some point after the above photograph was taken, but did resurfurce as an incomplete collection of bits in the noughties.
