The Bristol Scout was a single-seat rotary-engined biplane. It was used extensively by the RNAS, and also the RFC as a "scout", or fast reconnaissance type. It was one of the first single-seaters to be used as a dedicated fighter aircraft.
All later-built fighters continued to be called "scouts" in British usage into the early 1920s.
The first-ever Victoria Cross for the actions of a British single-seat military scout/fighter pilot in aerial combat against an enemy's heavier-than-air aircraft was awarded to Captain Lanoe Hawker, flying aircraft number 1611 with No. 6 Squadron RFC. Captain Lanoe downed two German aircraft and drove off a third on 25 July 1915 over Passchendaele and Zillebeke
