Arrived in Australia in 1919 with a Le Rhone rotary engine. Became G-AUCH in 1921. Struck off register in 1922 after the owner suffered serious injuries in the crash of an Avro 504. New owner rebuilt the Bristol in 1930 with a Gipsy engine and new registration, VH-UQI. Used for air racing. Grounded in 1936 when a certificate of airworthiness was refused. Now preserved at Harry Butler Memorial, Minlaton, South Australia in its original 1919 markings and a Le Rhone rotary. Photo from: State Library of South Australia
