Sized to make perfect wallpaper :)
I'm tempted to use it as wallpaper in the living room, but I foresee some difficulty in persuading the missus.

I posted a high res copy of the wonderful painting by Luciano Alviani used on the cover of the book in the extras section - low res preview attached. Sized to make perfect wallpaper :)

A bit off-topic, but similarly Gloster was descended from the Royal Aircraft Factory.  Compare the vertical tails of the S.E.5 and Gloster Grebe and you'll see what I mean.

Pretty sure that was just Henry Folland who joined Gloster from the Royal Aircraft Factory rather than a company connection per se.

Upon the liquidation of the Sopwith company, Tom Sopwith himself, together with Harry Hawker, Fred Sigrist and Bill Eyre, immediately formed H.G. Hawker Engineering, forerunner of the Hawker Aircraft and Hawker Siddeley lineage. Sopwith was Chairman of Hawker Siddeley until his retirement.

HAWKER AIRCRAFT originated as a rebranded Sopwith Aviation,

Sopwith and Hawker related ? I never knew that. Talk about an interesting legacy.
