Camel 1.F.1 F1948 30 September 1918 AWM C04684via Brendan Cowan

F5948 1.F.1 Original identity unknown,
Rebuilt issued new serial F5948,

Served with 4 Sqn, AFC.
H7238? 1.F.1 There is a possibility that a Camel marked “H7238” served with 4 Sqn, AFC.
This could be a simple misreporting of E7238 in the squadron records.
However, the serial block H6843 to H7342 was used to issue new serials to rebuilt aircraft such as F2b, DH4, DH9, DH9A, Camel, Dolphin, RE8 and SE5a types.
It is equally possible that the serial H7238 was allotted to a rebuilt Camel placed on charge with 4 Sqn or a simple record keeping error has occurred with E7238.
