WAS THERE A MOSQUITO AT RICHMOND
STILL IN ITS ORIGINAL CRATE?
In 2000 a friend of mine told me that there was a Mosquito located at Richmond air base still in its original crate. Could it be the one discussed below?
After the war, an instructor at the Sydney Technical College called Mark Leech, successfully negotiated a donation of 2 Spitfires, 1 Vultee Vengeance and 1 Mosquito to the College to be used for teaching aircraft apprentices.
The 2 Spitfires and the Vultee Vengeance, still in their original shipping crates were moved from Richmond to the college in Sydney. The Mosquito, which was damaged, was not moved.

Can anyone help me with more information?
