      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

Hubert Broad and the Sopwith Triplane

Recommended Posts

Can anyone please identify the date (even approximately) on which Captain H.S. (Hubert) Broad, RNAS, brought a Sopwith Tripe to Sutton's Farm - described as 'early 1918' - when he engaged in a mock dog-fight with a Sopwith F1 Camel? In case it provides a clue, Broad is said to have been on instructional and test flying duties at the time while recovering from injury. I can't vouch for this latter comment. Sutton's Farm was at the time home to No. 78 HD Squadron.

Thanks if anyone can suggest a date.
