The Bristol Scout was originally designed as a sports racer in 1913. It was one of the first aircraft employed by the Royal Flying Corps during the war. Originally unarmed, the Scout was later equipped with a variety of armaments, but it proved ineffective in aerial combat against custom-designed fighters. In the Australian Flying Corps, the scout was used principally as a trainer, but it was trialled for a brief period by 1 Squadron in Egypt.
