Serial looks like A9-1 - Supermarine Seagull III ordered 1925 and shipped 1926.

In early 1934 the a/c was embarked on HMAS Australia.

Converted to components 31/07/1934.

In 1934, as per caption, HMAS Canberra flight would have been A9-3 or A9-5.

So, coincidentally with the registration of the aircraft, A9-1, you could say that there are in total 10 Seagulls in view, 9 + 1 !!!....except I have just spied an 11th one near the ensign..never mind!

I can't quite make out their registration letters - All Seagull Mk 1 for sure though!
