Reminds me of when I was younger MAF's (Maintenance Action Form) were just coming into use and there were still a few Spad's in service an old salt was trying to explain the use of "proper verbiage" when a pilot handed him a MAF with the following Write up... Engine Missing
He signed it off....Found under engine cowling!

Interesting picture. The pan is in place, so what's missing ? How much of the motor can you see from that camera angle ?

The fellow in the back knows where it is. Look at the grin on his face.

Now if just the head was missing and about to be "replaced" I could see some big grins . . .

Rich B. makes a good point. The pan is there. Perhaps the head has been removed. The hand on the fender gives the illusion of background and maybe hiding the head.
The facial expressions are fun and maybe mischievous.

I believe the head is behind the guy on the right. Upside down on top of the wooden box.

I have some fenders that look like that. Should have used them. Easy to get to engine.

G. R. Cheshire:

If you were wrenching on airplanes when the Spad was just going out of service, this was some time ago.

My great uncle was with Squadron 23 RFC in the Great War. Though he was blinded by a gun sight whack on his head, he used to entertain me with flying stories while we sat in a Model T sedan parked in his yard, whilst I pretended to drive.
