Artist's Description

The Bristol F2b was the original fighter/bomber and saw considerable service in the latter part of WW1. Subsequent to that the Brisfit served with over 40 RAF Sqdns all over the world until the mid 30’s, as well as with at least 15 foreign nations. It was particularly useful in the ‘Colonial Policing’ role and was deployed to China, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Oman and Aden (something familiar there, perhaps!!)

The aircraft was used extensively in the Middle East and is seen here ‘up-country’ in the Wadi Hadhramaut area. Background from my own archives from RAF days in the region.
