A section of Bristol Fighters (F2b) taking off, as dawn breaks, from a rough field in Flanders, winter of 1917/18. A tough mission in those desperate days at the start of 1918 when aircrew in a combat Sqdn were unlikely to last past the three week mark.
The Bristol F2b (Brisfit) was the original fighter/bomber and saw considerable service in the latter part of WW1. Subsequent to that it served with over 40 RAF Sqdns all over the world until the mid 30's, as well as with several foreign nations. It was particularly useful in the 'Colonial Policing' role and was deployed to China, Iraq, Afghanistan, India, Oman and Aden (something familiar there, perhaps!!)
Have been interested in photography since just after WW2, when film became freely available again, using Kodak Autographic equipment. Graduated, in the 50's, to 35mm and was involved in photographic work during my 17 yrs as RAF aircrew - navigator. Since retirement and migrating to Canon digital equipment have been involved with two of my sons and one grandson in a considerable amount of photographic activity, particularly composite images. Now producing digital art prints with the major emphasis on classic warbird aviation.
