CORGI AVIATION ARCHIVE AA27602 1:72 SCALE Hawker Hurricane MkI, P3120 303 Polish Squadron Flying Officer Z K Henneberg Northolt, September 1940

Although the Spitfire is celebrated as Britain’s saviour during the Battle of Britain, it was the trusty Hawker Hurricane that inflicted most of the damage on the Luftwaffe. Indeed, the Hurricane destroyed more enemy aircraft than all of Britain’s other defences combined. In the hands of a capable pilot, the trusty Hurricane was a lethal adversary.
No. 303 Squadron was one of sixteen Polish squadrons in the RAF during World War Two. Formed in Blackpool, England in July 1940 the Squadron became fully operational on 31st August 1940 at RAF Northolt. The months that followed would prove to be extremely busy for the Squadron and it became the most successful Hurricane equipped squadron of the Battle of Britain.
