History[edit | edit source]

One of the early O/100s, 1463 left from Manston Airfield, developed engine trouble and landed behind German lines on 1 January 1917. The five crew, including Flight-Lieutenant Henry Connell Vereker, became prisoners of war and the aircraft was painted and flown in German markings until it later crashed.
