‘This overview and the serial list together form an extensive study of Nieuport aircraft in British service, though it is in no way definitive; nor is it intended to cover in detail the exploits of the airmen who flew in these aircraft. The accomplishments of men such as Fullard, Mannock, Ball, Bishop, Dallas, Goble and Little would take several volumes of this size to cover fully, and are to an extent already available, both in books and other publications including our quarterly Journal. We acknowledge in particular the researches of our late Vice-President J.M. Bruce over many years.’

‘It is difficult to over-estimate the importance of the various Nieuport types that served with the British flying services. The RNAS initially placed orders, and the RFC was quick to follow.

For the RNAS the two-seater variants were a great advance over the Henry Farmans and Caudrons they were currently employing, with a greater rate of climb, higher speed and heavier armament. The single-seater versions were the RNAS’ first true fighter and were the mainstay of the Service until the arrival of the Sopwith Pup and Triplane.

The RFC experience with the two-seaters was not so happy, but the single-seat versions made a huge contribution to their strength, and during the summer of 1917 claimed the lion’s share of victories. Without them the RFC would have been in a very poor position.’
