After being declared surplus after the armistice, the aircraft was shipped to Australia were it was registered as G-AUDO to a C.D. Pratt of Geelong, Victori, on December 28, 1921. Subsequent registered owners were L.F. Pratt, also of Geelong (June 22, 1927), K.R.M. Farmer of Malvern (January 13, 1928), and D.H. Jenkins, Caulfield (March 5, 1928).
