Hawker "Hedgehog" (Bristol "Jupiter"). The "Hedgehog" is a three-seater Fleet reconnaissance machine. The wings are of short span and fairly thick section, and a gravity tank is neatly faired off in the top centre 'plane. The wings fold. The pilot is seated underneath the top wing, and the gunner is just clear of the trailing edge with the second cockpit between the two. The "Hedgehog" is not yet a standard type for use in Service squadrons.

THE HAWKER "HEDGEHOG": A three-seater Fleet Reconnaissance machine with Bristol "Jupiter" engine. By the courtesy of the H. G. Hawker Engineering Company our photographer was able recently to secure these photographs of the machine in flight. The photograph of Flight-Lieut. Bulman, who is now chief test pilot to this firm, gives a good idea of the size of the "Hedgehog."
