A British fighter plane, called "Rawalpindi" and named after the 29th Punjab regiment, brought down in apparently excellent condition by German forces during World War I. Note that the regiment, composed of Sikhs and Punjabi Muslims actually served in Africa during the war, but the aircraft may have been brought down in Europe or merely named after the regiment – air power was a new force in warfare at the time. Note the careful composition of the shot: the man examining the cockpit, the high-ranking soldiers in the front of the fuselage, the cloth or canvas piece in the foreground. On the back of the card someone has scrawled: "This is what roused me out of my sleep more than once."
