    Default Looking for some 249 Sqn Hurricane codes, Malta, 1941

    Hello everyone

    I'm trying to track down some codes for the following Hurricanes of 249 Sqn at Malta in 1941:

    Hurricane Z2904
    Hurricane Z4005 - possibly GN-S?
    Hurricane Z4016
    Hurricane Z4028
    Hurricane Z4041

    If anyone can help at all, I'd be most grateful.

    Regards

    Hi Simon,
    I'm pretty sure that 249 squadron took on a lot of 261 squadrons hurricanes when they relieved them in 1941.
    I've been searching for the 261 squadron ORB for years to no avail.
    Regards
    Gerry
