A Martinsyde G.102 Elephant seen at Brooklands. A6289 was a presentation aircraft, named Mount Lofty, South Australia, and presented to the RFC by Mrs H. Bickford. Designed at the outset as a single seat fighter, it was more effectively employed as a bomber by way of its good loading capability. The author recalls that Elephants floated horribly. The G.102 was powered by the 160 h.p. Beardmore engine.
