Airco DH.5 A9544
This profile is taken from a photo in the AWM collection of the DH.5 A9544. The photo shows the aircraft on a trailer with six men standing around it. The aircraft was involved in an accident on the 6th of December 1917 with Lieutenant McKenzie in the cockpit, the reason which is contained in the days combat reports.
The serial denoted in the report for Lieutenant Forrests aircraft could possibly be A9535 as the serial is hard to read. The Squadron code for the aircraft is unknown. Lieutenant Robertsons aircraft is possibly A4938, but again the serial is hard to read. The squadron code for Robertsons aircraft is "Y". Lieutenant Johnson's aircraft A9279 coded 'W' was damaged by E.A. in same action near Bourlon Wood 6.12.17 to 2ASD. A.E.I. means Attacks on Enemy Infantry Report.
