Aircraft are prepared for flight testing at X Aircraft Park. They are, from left to right, a Bristol F.2B Fighter, an S.E.5a, a Nieuport 17 and a D.H.9. A Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2e is also visible on the threshold of the Bessonneau tent hangar. The white circles in the foreground delineate a compass base for swinging the compasses of the aircraft.
Fitters hard at work in the engine installation bays at X Aircraft Park. From right to left, the aircraft include an Airco D.H.9 (awaiting its engine), a Nieuport Scout, an S.E.5a, another D.H.9 and a Sopwith F.1 Camel. The Egyptian Expeditionary Force had been formed in March 1916 under the command of General Archibald Murray.
The fabric shop, with wing panels being covered (or re-covered) in the foreground. Visible in the back­ground on the right are a D.H.9, an S.E.5a and a Nieuport. The second wing panel along is a port upper wing panel for either a B.E.2e or R.E.8; its inverted-vee bracing struts for the upper-wing extension are seen here being fitted.
