It was a radical departure in 1916 to return to the monoplane formula, so much so that the Bristol M.1 was never given a fair chance on the Western front despite its speed and maneuverability. The M.1A was the prototype, and four further examples were built as the M.1B for service trials with various engines. Thirty-five production M.1Cs were sent to the Middle East in 1917, but they never fully equipped any squadron. In 1918 they served also in Macedonia.
