AB Serials Hurricane P3533Hello 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. L1793;1794;1804;1805;1806;1812;1815;1816;1853;1961;1980;1988; N2543 P2644;2632;2633. So am two numbers short. There is also a question of six extra Hurricanes delivered at a later date ? 17 pilots, here I only have the following, are they all correct and if not who were the others please ? F/Lt Stewart; F/O.
