Photograph of an airbourne aircraft identified as 'the bomber'. This aircraft appears to be an RE8. The RAF roundel is just visible on the left side of the fuselage.

One of an album of 24 black and white photographs of the Middle East during World War I, probably taken by Australian Flying Corps photographer Norman Henry Clutterbuck, the maternal uncle of the previous owner Ray Kerby. The album mostly contains aerial photographs of locations around the Middle East including Jerusalem, Jericho, Gaza and Jaffa some of which appear to be duplicates of photographs found in the war diaries of the No. 1 Squadron, Australian Flying Corps, held at the Australian War Memorial. The album ST 41221, from the same source, contains copies of some of the images included in this album.
