Throughout the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane MK I was used in service for the Fighter Command in greater numbers than the Spitfire did. It has shot down far more enemy aircrafts too. In 1947, the Hurricane MK I finally gained popularity because of its role as a “tank buster”. The Hurricane MK I left the squadron service with RAF.

The Hurricane MK I was flown by one of the most famous pilots in history, Albert Lewis, on July 1940. After ten days of attack, the unit had lost 24 Hurricanes, bringing only 3 back from the continent. The first command squadron to receive Hurricanes was the squadron commanded by Sqdn. Ldr. John Gilan based in Northolt before Christmas 1937. The Hurricane MKI is said to have 8 machine guns.
