    Default Hawker Hurricane P3036

    I have been sent a photograph of Hurricane P3036 with a single code on the fuselage of "6"

    I believe it was taken at a training unit and probably in the UK

    It is from a family in the northeast of england

    Any idea where I might find details of the units it served on

    Hi,

    P3035 - according to the RAF Serials book from Air Britain this aircraft served with 6 OTU and then with 79 Sq.

    @ Franek - unfortunately A-B books does not contains any dates, just a simple list of units.

    Just to add my two penn'orth...

    F. K. Mason's The Hawker Hurricane' (Crecy Publishing) has an entry for P3036 at the back, which just records 'Converted to Sea Hurricane IA c.3.41, and later transferred to Admiralty charge.'

    P3036 had previously been in the North East with 32 Squadron in late 1940:

    See also Korber's entry in 'Men of the Battle of Britain' - like P3036 he went from 6 OTU to 32 Squadron.

    Regards

    Simon
