The Sopwith 7F.1 Snipe was the Royal Air Force's most advanced fighter aircraft produced during the Great War and was the successor to the Sopwith Camel. Fewer than 500 were produced, and only two original examples exist today, though both and been extensively rebuilt for display purposes. These swatches of original 1918-produced linen were removed from one of those two aircraft, E6938, in the 1950s during its original restoration by collector Jack Canary. The sections of original fabric were then gifted to collector Robert Boheme. Ron Cole acquired the Boheme estate in 2022.
These pieces of linen are paired with Ron Cole's original artwork of a Snipe in action from 4 Sqn, Australian Flying Corps, c. 1919.
