    Default Hurricane Crash in St Mary Bourne

    Hi, can anybody help me with the identification of a Hurricane that crashed in St Mary Bourne, Nr Andover Hampshire. Rumour has it, this happened during the summer months as it was lost in a field growing crops, and not found until they were harvesting. The pilot bailed out ok and landed in a chicken coup. It is known to have had 20mm on board as these were found years ago. It may have been a night fighter as the crash occured in the dark. Not much to go on but maybe someone can help. Many thanks
