I have been reading your world war one series as I have an interest in the military history.

Unfortunately I think that the caption under the photo on page 42 is incorrect.

I believe it to be an LGV CII two seater reconnaissance biplane and should read “The fuselage of a German LVG CII biplane, captured in France, is paraded along Fleet Street as a trophy in 1916”.

I am not an expert, just an enthusiastic amateur but I think this is correct.
