Fly Off Peter Wyatt-Smith, Malta 1941Hi Alex, Brian Cull, in 'Hurricanes Over Malta' (p.309), mentions the following: Appendix V (notes). The six pilots (ferrying Hurricanes from Takoradi to Abu Sueir), were Flg Off C D Whittingham, Plt Offs P A Worrall, P Wyatt-Smith, J J Walsh, a Canadian, I R Currie and Sgt A H Deacon, all of whom ended up at Malta.
