Reid & Sigrist R.S.1 Snargasher



Reid & Sigrist Ltd built a twin-engined advanced trainer popularly known as the Snargasher, of which only a prototype (G-AEOD) was built.

A three seat trainer built at Desford shortly before the Second World War, power was by two de Havilland Gipsy Six engines. The aircraft’s first public appearance was at the Royal Aeronautical Society garden party at Heathrow in May 1939.

During the war the Snargasher flew as the maker’s communication aircraft until scrapped in 1944.
