Hurricane IIc AI Radar (Picture/Diagram needed)

Looking for images of Hurricane IIc's equipped with AI Mark VI radar equipment.

The aerial system on BN288 (A standard MkIIC) comprised a Type 69
transmitting dipole taken from the Mosquito AI installation, which
needed moving inboard of the landing light to clear the guns, Defiant
Type 29 unipole arrays for the elevation elements and vertically
polarised azimuth dipoles taken from the night-fighter version of the
Fairey Fulmar.

A flight was sent to Calcutta in 1943 and saw service with 176 Squadron.

The serial numbers were -

HV709, HW435, KX359, KX765



See the following links for some more (sparse) info...

HV 709 was lost with Pilot Pring at the controls
