7F.1

 

The Sopwith 7 F 1 Snipe first appeared in early 1918 and by the Armistice was in service with several squadrons. A squadron comprised the fighter element of the force which took over responsibility of policing in Iraq from October 1922.

Some 497 were in use with the RAF until 1926 and gradually replaced by the Gloster Grebe and Armstrong Whitworth Siskin from 1923.
