Avro 504K with Foster's Mount...

foster-mount-avro504Avro 504 with Lewis Machine Gun fitted to a Foster's Mount.

The Foster Mount was developed by Sergeant R.G. Foster of the No. 11 Squadron of the Royal Flying Corps in 1916.
This device allowed a machine gun to be fired above the propeller arc. It was mounted on a track that could quickly be pulled down, allowing the pilot to quickly reload the weapon.

A Sopwith Camel Biplane D9638 of No.203 Squadron after a forced landing at Noyelles sur L'Escaut, France. October 1918.

The Sopwith Camel had a wooden box-like fuselage structure, an aluminium engine cowling, plywood panels around the cockpit. Fabric-covered fuselage, wings and tail.
For the first time on an operational British-designed fighter, two 0.303 inch Vickers machine guns were mounted directly in front of the cockpit, synchronised to fire forwards through the propeller arc.
In addition to the machine guns, a total of four Cooper bombs could be carried for ground attack purposes.

Southampton II

supermarine-southampton-flying-boat Supermarine Southampton Serial No. S1233. No. 201 Squadron RAF.
No. 203 Squadron Serials: S1038, S1152, S1229, S1298, S1299, S1300, S1421, S1422, S1423.

The Southampton was a twin-engine biplane flying boat, with the tractor engines mounted between the wings.
The Southampton Mk I had both its hull and its wings manufactured from wood.
The Southampton Mk II had a hull with a single thickness of metal (duralumin) (the Mk I had a double wooden bottom).
This change gave a weight saving of 900 lb (409 kg) allowing for an increase in range of approximately 200 mi (320 km).
In 1929, 24 of the Mk I were converted by having newly built metal hulls replacing the wooden ones. Some of the later aircraft were built with metal wings and were probably designated as Southampton Mk III.
There were three positions for machine guns, one in the nose and two staggered in the rear fuselage.
The first flight of a production Supermarine Southampton was made on 10 March 1925.
Delivery to the RAF started in mid-1925.
