The Snipe was introduced just before the end of WWI as a successor to the Sopwith Camel the and proved to be a very effective fighter that remained in RAF service until 1926. This replica was built in New Zealand using an original engine and many original parts and is painted in the colours of FO Dermot Boyle who served with No.1 Sqdn in Iraq in 1926. He later went on to become founding Chairman of the Trustees for the RAF Museum.
