Howard Leigh was a successful aviation illustrator of the 1930's and was brother to Doris Leigh - Capt. W.E. John's (of Biggles fame) lifetime companion - his drawings capture perfectly the symmetry of the aircraft of the war period.
This beautiful print is at least 77 years old & is presented in a double mount
The Bristol Bullet or Scout, was first produced in 1914 by the British & Colonial Aeroplane Co. Ltd. Several of these machines were on active service in France as early as September of the same year. The machine that was in service in No. 3 Squadron was fitted out with two rifles, one on each side of the fuselage, shooting at an angle of about 45 degrees in order to miss the airscrew.This type of machine was used for pursuit, & was far superior to anything the Germans had. The pilot used to fire a revolver or rifle, as may be expected, usually without success.The power units used from time to time were the 80 h.p. Gnome, the 100 h.p. Mono, the 110 Le Rhone, or the 130 h.p. Clerget.

The print itself measures just 4.25 inches x 5.25 inches & is mounted in a double mount measuring 7 inch x 9 inch ready to drop into a standard size frame.
