Overall size 33” x 23”
Hurricane Mk1s of 504 Squadron shattering
the silence of the English countryside as they power into the dawn
sky. For the highly courageous but weary pilots it is the first
of what will probably be several scrambles in a typical day during
the Battle of Britain.
During the long summer of 1940 southern England formed the battle
line upon which the future of the free world hung in the balance.
Heavily outnumbered, the rugged Hurricane and its determined crews
bore the brunt of relentless attacks by the Luftwaffe. Despite lacking
the sophistication of the Spitfire or ME109, the Hurricane was an
excellent aircraft, well loved by its pilots. It was rugged, stable
and could absorb a lot of punishment and keep flying. During the
course of the war the Hurricane flew in every combat theatre and
in virtually every role conceivable for a fighter.
