The Sopwith Camel is widely recognized as the most successful allied fighters of the Great War. Of the men who flew them exclusively one name stands out above the rest - Major Donald R MacLaren. A Canadian by birth, MacLaren joined the RFC in 1917. After serving briefly in Canada, he was finally posted to France where he was assigned to 46 Squadron. His number of victories quickly began to accumulate, and by the end of the war he had brought his total to 54. Although he flew 5 different Camels during his war time career, he scored his final nine victories in this machine, F2137.
