The Bendigo Commemorative Motor

Does anyone know anything about this motor or the designer, David Kerr?
How many were made? What was it commemorating?
This engine was originally owned by Chris Greenwood, deceased, ex MAAA Secretary for many years.
The internals are supposedly from a FROG 500. Let me know and I will post any info on the blog.

David Kerr is alive and well and is a member of the Greensborough Model Aero Club.
John Lamont has made contact with David and will feature the motors in the next Aust. Model News newsletter. The internals were not Frog 500, David designed them himself. He  made 15 of these motors, selling only five. He still has the remainder at home. For further information you will have to wait for the next edition of Aust Model News.
