None of the above Fireflies seemingly initially registered with the YRA or NFA.

Fairey Marine records note the purchaser just as "Mr A", but no despatch address details, subsequent owners, so perhaps some exported?

Perhaps "Mr A" was an agent for Fairey Marine?

Subsequent RYA and NFA records suggest subsequent owners and this information is detailed against the individual Firefly, but best not relied on.

Hull number - 48

Construction mould not recorded

Seemingly raced in UK, photographs seen of the boat racing at Hayling Island SC
