About this image
This picture is one of a series taken by a Derbyshire man, H V Green of Killamarsh (see DCHQ001866), who served as a despatch rider during World War 1 as part of General Allenby's advance in Egypt. His photographs record the flights and accidents a variety of aircraft. The aeroplane seen here is a Caudron G6; a twin engined bomber. The engines seem to be missing, so perhaps the plane was being burnt after removal of usable parts, probably the aircraft had been damaged beyond repair.
