Bristol 25 Braemar II         C4297


                                      This monstrosity was Bristol's reply to the German attacks on London by the Zeppelins.  It was
                                      intended to make the round trip from British bases to Berlin and back carrying six 250 lb bombs.
                                      Several prototype versions were being tested when the signing of the Armistice in 1918 made
                                      their intended use obsolete.  The Mark I had four AS Pumas whilst the Mk II, seen above, had
                                      the more powerful 400 hp U.S. built Liberty twelve-cylinder vee type liquid-cooled engines.  One
                                      of the Braemar aircraft was converted to a civil machine, the Pullman.
