On the departure to Vickers of the incumbent designers George Challenger and Archibald Low, the British & Colonial Aeroplane Company (aka Bristol) acquired the services of Pierre Prier from the Bleriot School at Hendon. The aircraft was offered in both single seat and two seat variants, some of which had side by side seating. Built mainly for private use some were used militarily, No 12 squadron R.F.C. took delivery of an example and so did the Turkish Army and a two seater was bought by the Bulgarian government which was used in the Balkan War. Some 34 were produced in total.
