The aircraft in this lovely print is a Royal Aircraft Factory R.E.8, affectionately known to its crewmen as the " Harry Tate". It was a suitable platform for observation and photography , but it suffered from power maneuverability and thus tended to be an easy target for German fighters. This particular machine served with 16 Squadron RFC.
