Hurricane IIcs

Hurricane IIcs

It is taken at Tangmere in September 1940 and arrived with me via Canada.This is most pobably L1884 with 607 Squadron. This is suposed to be the aircraft that was 321 with the Canadians. Does this mean that the aircraft returned to there RAF serials when they came back to the UK. Is it possible that L1884 was not RCAF 321 ? Doe anyone have any confirmation that the serial tie up currently accepted is correct. Could RCAF 321 have actually been the pattern aircaft L1848 ?

Hawker Typhoons - the unsung heroes of WWII - possibly the most effective ground attack aircraft at the ’D’ day landings and the subsequent push inland - they were a feared tank buster and convoy.
