A1-25 is towed ashore after ditching in Sydney Harbour, presumably due to engine failure. It was based at nearby RAAF Richmond. The water-logged aircraft was "converted to components" soon after. A1-25 had been part of the Imperial Gift, a collection of over 100 aircraft from the RAF to help form the RAAF. Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa also received Imperial Gifts.

This light bomber was used at the end of WWI but with poor results due to it being underpowered and by 1920 they had been withdrawn from RAF service. Many were then gifted to Commonwealth countries. The nose carries the legend 'Presented by His Highness the Nizam of Hyderabad. Hyderabad No12a.' During WWI a whole Squadron, No 152, had been gifted to the RAF by the Nizam.
