The Alloa built aircraft were made by British Caudron, so I will have a listing of them, but not to hand.

will send you details of the differences between the two types by e-mail.
However no B.E.2es were built by British Caudron so the must be B.E.2cs.

According to Robertson's British Military Serial B6151-B6200 were built at Alloa by the British Caudron company as BE2c/e (now confirmed, by Paul, as BE2c).
British Caudron, formerly WH Ewen, had a flying school at Hendon, and assembled aircraft there and in Cricklewood, before opening in Alloa.
B1683 became CFS18 in Australian service.
WH Ewen had the Caudron agency for Britain, and a flying school at Lanark initially.
When Ewen (the first man to fly across the Firth of Forth) sold his shares, the company became a subsidy of Caudron Freres, under the management of Andrew Ramsey.
It went in to receivership after the war, though the airfield at Alloa was used later by Alan Cobham.
