    Default Rudolf Hess Flight to Scotland 10 May 1941

    I have read that two Hurricanes from Turnhouse (?) attempted to intercept Hess on his flight. This is in addition to a Defiant from Prestwick and two 602 Squadron Spitfires from Ayr. Would anybody have any detail on the two Hurricanes at all (possibly Squadron and serials)?

    Many Thanks

    Hi,

    I f I remember well it was 245 Sq, Hurricanes piloted by Czech pilots Sgt Vaclav Baumann and Sgt Leopold Srom.

    Pavel,

    Many thanks for this and my apologies for the late response as I have only just seen this response. I thought I had my settings to show replies.

    Kind Regards
