The B.E.2 inspired the first generation of fighters by displaying all of the qualities that no one wanted in a fighter aircraft, including poor visibility, poor reliability, difficulty of control, slow speed, and weak armament.

My family has in it's possession a piece of canvas type material about 5 x 3 inches painted a red colour on one side and a hand written inscription on the reverse which reads " A piece of the Union Jack which was on the ill fated British aeroplane brought down by our troops in mistake for a German at Gheluveldt on Oct 26th 1914 " This artefact was found in my Grandfather's possessions about 25 years ago. My Grandfather was a soldier in the Great War. Supposedly this aircraft is the first historical Ground to Air Friendly Fire incident ever recorded. I am looking to return it home after 100 years. Any suggestions? I have the names of the crew of this aircraft - LT C G Hosking and Capt T Crean and think it best be given to their direct families.
Regards Greg
