Ths looks like the engine I took a photo of in 1973, It was located west of Hanley Saskatchewan Belonging to a family by name of Wunsch. I kept track of the engine and the story is, one of the family lived at Prince Albert and owned an Airplane. He had work done on the plane and as payment gave the engine to the aircraft mechanic who lived at Shellbrooke. I also have a photo of this engine taken in 1955 by W.E. Deering.

I stand corrected, John Tysse is correct the engine belonged to the Duncan family. I had been wracking my brain for the past week to remember the name and Wunsch seemed to stick there. Ron Smith

Ron,
Thanks for the information on the GS. You say you have some older pictures of that engine and they would be nice to see also
I also agree with Gary about seeing some pictures of your collection, some of us have heard tell of you before, you know?
All the best,
G.
