DRG DH 5220 P26
?.I.S ??28
GIPSY 1

DH 5220 is the de Havilland drawing number for a range of Moth aircraft equipped with the Gypsy Major 1 engine. There are seventy variants. The type of aircraft was indicated by a letter; DH5220/P indicates a DH82 Tiger Moth and the Auster, both widely used training and communication light aircraft used by the RAF during WW2.

With kind regards,

Bob
