One of the most famous aircraft to serve with the Royal Air Force, it was actually in service with the Royal Flying Corp before World War One began - and was still in use when the Second World War started. At the start of the First World War, it was used for reconnaissance and bombing, but quickly became outclassed. However, because of its good handling qualities, it was ideal as a trainer, a role in which it served for many years.
