CANVAS of SE5 - Evening Flight

SE5a Flight The last of the daylight catches a section of SE5s heading for home - the flight commander (flying the pennants) providing top cover for his colleagues. The silk scarf seen on the pilot is not an affectation but was to alleviate friction burns caused by the constant need to check behind for enemy aircraft - this solution carried on into WW2 where the fighter pilots ‘insignia’ was the top tunic button undone with a silk scarf and no tie - seriously bad form, old boy.
