Photographer's Remark

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.
