    Default Hurricane squadron/unit codes

    The squadron/unit codes used by Hurricane operators can be found at http://www.k5083.mistral.co.uk/SQ_CODES.HTM.

    Listed by alphabet + by unit No.

    and

    Hello Brian,

    There's also the earlier "Squadron codes 1937-56" by Michael J.F. Bowyer and John D.R. RAWLINGS which was published by PSL in 1979. Quite handy with a smaller size than "Combat Codes", but the latter was published almost 30 years later so benefits of an updated knowledge on the subject.

    I don't remember if "Combat Codes" mentions U.S.A.A.F. codes, but "Squadron codes" does, which is another good point.
