An Australian mate recently sent me a pic of an unusual find. A Sopwith designed product built by Ruston Proctor Ltd. What could it be ? A little research soon provided a likely suspect. Lady munitionettes with a newly built Sopwith Camel, at Lincoln during WW1. Ruston Proctor built these planes under license at a ( recently demolished ) factory in Lincoln. How did this lable get as far as Australia ? It was probably 'souvenired' from a plane wreck in France and taken home in an AEF back back !
