Don't know why I didn't do a quick 'Google' before posting but I must have got the pictures from this site:

Hallo....first p
ost....the whole set of these pics is on......(and they were taken by top fashion photographer Norman Parkinson and top Aircraft Photographer Charles E Brown)

www.aviationarchives.info/search/aspTextSearch=X2RT           under site information  click on 'files online'

if I remember correctly they were sent to someone at Manston? by a company having a clearout at Exeter. Ramsgate and Exeter pre-war airport terminals were run by the Straight Corporation (Whitney Straight, war hero and later top man at BOAC, who grew up at Dartington Hall where his family hung out with Modernist Architects and Artists)......longshot

I found the following pictures a year or two ago but I cant remember where from so cant give any credit out.
I also dont have any information on the site as either there wasn't any with the pictures or I forgot to note it down.
Any info would be great.
