There is some debate about the c/n of this air frame. Preserved F938 is former G-EBIC and 687/2404 is given by CAA to G-EBIC. It may be the case that large parts of F938 in the RAF Museum and F937 (ex G-EBIB) in the Science Museum have been exchanged in the thirties, resulting in a mix-up of identity.
E5757 was delivered to 2 Sqn of the Australian Flying Corps. 2 Sqn officially 68 Sqn in the Royal Flying Corps to avoid confusion with The RFC's 2 Sqn. The Australians never accepted the RFC number and it was dropped early in 1918. The state library captioned the photo as Egypt, where 2 Sqn was formed in 1916. However it was on the Western Front when it received SE-5As at the end of 1917. Operated from airfields in France and Belgium. Squadron stayed in Europe until 1919.
