Re: Photo Sopwith

Col

Without a serial number I think you will be hard pushed to identify this one.

The Naval Air Service designated the Monosoupape engined tractor biplane/seaplanes both as Schneider and Baby.
I don't know why they (Sopwith?) changed name specifically on contract C.P.48013/15 and in spite of using both engines (also the Clerget one) they still were known by the name Baby in the batch 8118 - 8217. All earlier M-engined aircraft were known as Schneiders.

However you are correct, they were never known as Tabloids. That name was only used by the RFC.

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Sopwith

Stig,


Totally happy to accept whatever you and the Col agree upon with regard to the type of aircraft shown, because I don'yt know.


However Sturtivant & Page use Tabloid for the RNAS in Royal Navy Aircraft Serials and Units 1911-1919.


Regards,


Clint

Re: Photo Sopwith

True Clint

But if you check they are all ex RFC aircraft. They probably didn't dare to change their names....

Cheers
Stig

Re: Photo Sopwith

Hi Stig,


See serials 1201- 1212 or at least no previous RFC ownership is mentioned there.


They probably would have changed the name just to spite the RFC for the sake of interservice rivalry and then could go on to fight the 'real enemy' the other service rather than the distraction provided by the Kaiser


Regards,


Clint
