Hurricane LW-DGentlemen, Further to the picture shown of Hurricane Mk I AG203 coded LW-D. I thought it may be of interest to show you another picture, identical to that shown of Sqn Ldr Colin Leagh-Murray with Hurricane LW-D AG203. Only this picture shows Acting Squadron Leader George Milner-Smith DFC of No. 256 Squadron in front of the same Hurricane. The picture was recently sent to me by his Son (also George Milner Smith) when he sent me his Father's kit. His Son had always thought that Hurricane AG203 was his Father's own Aircraft. Having seen the Leagh-Murray picture that now may not to be the case, but his Father was never able to confirm this. Sadly his Father was shot down by ground fire over Italy on 15th April 1945 in Mosquito JT/A (HK 508). I hope this is of interest on this thread.
