This is the Signed original Gouache painting by Keith Fretwell.

Diagrams of a De Havilland DH4. The Airco DH.4 was a British two-seat biplane day-bomber of the First World War. It was the first British two seat light day-bomber to have an effective defensive armament.

It first flew in August 1916 and entered service with the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) in March 1917. The majority of DH4s were actually built as general purpose two-seaters in the USA, for service with the American forces in France. This is a superb diagrammatic detailed painting.

The DH4 was tried with several engines, of which the best was the 375 hp (280 kW) Rolls-Royce Eagle engine. Armament and ordnance for the aircraft consisted of one 0.303 in (7.7 mm) Vickers machine gun for the pilot and one 0.303 in (7.7 mm) Lewis gun on a Scarff ring mounting for the observer. Two 230 lb (100 kg) bombs or four 112 lb (51 kg) bombs could be carried. The DH.4 entered service on 6 March 1917 with No. 55 Squadron in France.
