I think "Bar" usually means that there is another aircraft in the unit with the same letter...in this case "E". The code on the side of the fuselage will have a bar underneath it or on top of it to signify this is the second aircraft (usually in the same squadron), with that letter code, ie. E

 

Someone will post photos I'm sure...I hope...

 

Richard
