Try Hurricanes over Malta, by Brian Cull, published by Grub Street. I don't know of any better source.

Re: 261 Squadron Hurricane's

Fine, if you knew about the book already. However, doesn't Amazon's second-hand site work in Germany?

261 lost a lot of Hurricanes in 1941: you are asking someone to do quite a lot of work.
