The agile and highly manoeuvrable Sopwith Camel was without doubt one of the most successful fighter aircraft of the First World War and accounted for more enemy aircraft destroyed than any other British type. Named Camel as a result of the hump shaped fairing that housed the two 0.303 in Vickers machine guns was a real handful to operate effectively, with the torque from its powerful rotary engine. The Camel was the finest fighting aircraft produced and was superior to all contemporary German fighters. William George Barker joined the Squadron as 'C Flight Commander and flew with No.28 Sqn in France. He later shot down an Albatros D.V which he didn't claim as he wasn't supposed to cross the lines, but went on to down several more Albatros fighters.
