The Pullman was developed as a 14-passenger variant of the Bristol Braemar bomber. [1]

The third prototype Braemar was completed as the prototype and sole Pullman and first flew early in May 1920. [2]

1920 Shown at the International Aero Show at Olympia in July of that year, where its great size and interior fittings were much admired. [3]

The Pullman was one of the earliest British aircraft to have a fully enclosed crew cabin, and this feature was disliked by service pilots, who often carried fireman's axes with them to enable them to escape in an emergency. [4]
