    Default 3 Squadron Hurricanes, July 1940 period - photos?

    Hello everyone

    I'm trying to track down some photos of 3 Squadron Hurricane Mk. Is from the summer of 1940, when they were posted in Wick, for a modelling project.

    I've searched online without any joy, and the book 'Three's Company - An Illustrated History of No. 3 (Fighter) Squadron RAF' by Jack Long only has photos of their Hurricane Is from before the war, and Hurricane IIBs from later in the war.

    Has anyone any pointers...?

    Many thanks.

    Regards

    Simon

    There are three Hurricanes in an IWM photo, ref CH 70, at Wick around that time. No squadron is given as the main subject of the photo is a Wellington, the fighters are 'props'.

    Hope this helps,
