Photographer's Remark

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light bomber was used at the end of WWI but with poor results due to it being underpowered and by 1920 they had been withdrawn from RAF service.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.
