6 Squadron BE2 - Union Jack

On the 18th October 1914, shortly after it had been flown across the channel, BE2 Serial 636 was at Poperinghe for one day, having a Union Jack painted on the underside of the port wing. Before this date, there were no markings on the aircraft to show whether an aircraft was friendly or an enemy, especially difficult for soldiers on the ground when defending their position.
