Externally-armoured screens were fitted before the Battle; Stanford Tuck got his during the Dunkirk evacuation, and it saved his life on the same day.

He did and it certainly did.

Two 20mm cannon shells(Bob Tuck thinks)bounced off it from a head-on charge at a Bf110.............

Which of the three Revell 1/32 Spitfires have you lost the part from? I might well be able to help out.

There's a Spitfire canopy in RAF Museum Hendon with a cannon shell welded into the armour plate. Who's aircraft was this from?
