John North was rightly convinced that steel tube was structurally stronger and a good 10% lighter than the equivalent spruce built aircraft of the time. The R.A.F. concious of the shortage of spruce brought about by the excesses of World War I ordered, under specification 4 /20, a steel tube version of the Boulton & Paul Bourges. It was never intended to be anymore than an experimental aircraft and no series production was undertaken.
