Sopwith F.1 Camel - Great Britain
Serial: 1 (B6313) Unit: 28 Sqn, RAF Pilot - Capt.William G.Barker. France-Italy, October 1917 - February 1918.
Unit: 139 Sqn, RAF. Pilot - Maj.William G.Barker. Villaverla, Italy, September 1918.
B6313 went through many changes to it's appearance during it's year of combat flying. Initially it had No.28 Sqn's white square and wheel covers and flight number of '1' with a small 'C'. Possibly changed to 'N' when No.28 went to Italy. When Barker went to No.66 Sqn, B6313 most likely had their markings of a vertical bar in front of the roundel and a horizontal one behind it, but no photo has been found. Upon going to No.139 Sqn B6313 had two white bands behind the roundel, changing to 4 white and 3 black and later expanding to 7 white and 6 black extending from the roundel to the tailplane. B6313 also had an arrow through the heart on it's fin. At some point this was repainted as it is shown with the arrow facing both fore and aft at different times. Here B6313 is depicted in its ultimate appearance at No.139 Sqn RAF in September 1918.
