This is a very rare, genuine Great War survivor. It was built in 1917 and served with Jasta 29. It was shot down during a dogfight with an RE.8 of 3 Squadron, AFC. The pilot, Lt Clauss was wounded and force-landed just inside the Australian lines between Armentieres and Ploegsteert Wood. Recovered under shellfire by 3 Sqn and eventually shipped to Austalia for the Australian War Memorial collection. Restored as close as possible to original condition during 2007-8.
