    Hello Tom,

    Via the book by Bruce Robertson ( British Military Aircraft Serials), I can give Tiger Moth BB857 the code G-ADOX. From there you can go to more details here:

    http://www.goldenyears.ukf.net/reg_G-A7.htm

    It was a D.H.82A, the model can then be convertet to a Mk II (if I can trust the sources)!

    Regards

    Finn Buch
