    Default 254 Sqdn Hurricanes and Middle Wallop?

    A question has been posted on our website regarding 254 Sqdn and whether they ever flew Hurricanes or flew out of Middle Wallop...my inclination is to say no to both, but I am glad to be corrected.

    Paul,

    I can't answer your question, but if no-one on this forum is able to provide a definitive answer, there is a museum at Middle Wallop that might be able to assist. Try emailing Alison Brierly at alison@flying-museum.org.uk

    This is actually the Museum of Army Flying, but the airfield is still operational so it's worth a try.

    Default 245 Sqn?

    Is it possible/likely that this is an error? 245Sqn flew Hurricanes out of Middle Wallop in 1941.
