|AB Serials Hurricane P3533||Hello Paul,
I had originaly thought that your question revolved around those 46 Sqdn Hurricanes in Norway.
12 Days in May quotes 18 Hurricanes and 17 pilots.
I have only these Hurricane numbers.
So am two numbers short.
There is also a question of six extra Hurricanes delivered at a later date ?
here I only have the following, are they all correct and if not who were the others please ?
F/Lt Stewart; F/O. Knight; Sgt. Shakley; F/O. Cowles; F/O. Mee; Sgt.Taylor; F/O. Frost; P/O. Bunker; P/O. Drummond; F/O. Lydall; P/O. Banks; F/Lt. Jameson; P/O. Johnson; Sgt. Tyrer; P/O. Plummer; P/O. Lefevre; S/Ldr Cross.
As for the CFF Hurricanes here is my list from AB books. I only list here those that have no result as far as further info come to my attention.
