Hurricane serial number June 1940

Hi Alex

I hope you see this!

Has Norman Franks found the serial numbers of the following Hurricanes ?

17 Squadron 6 June 1940 (Holman)

17 Squadron 9 June 1940 (Leary)

79 Squadron 7 June 1940 (Emms and Whittaker)

They don't appear in the original version.

Thanks in advance
Brian

Hi Brian ,

From Peter Cornwell in " Battle of France Then and Now " :

- Holman : P3360 ( probably crashed at Bacqueville-en-Caux , Normandy ).

- Leary : not known , but probably force-landed near Bolbec , Normandy .

- Emms : P3472 , missing .

- Whittaker : P2905 , missing .

Hope this help
