Hi all, Iv'e just watched Angels One Five, for about the 10th time, it has some great footage of Battle of Britain  era Hurricane's. Many close ups at dispersal takeoff and landing, also many WWII era aircraft recognition posters in the back ground in the dispersal huts. A really great film in my mind for the time. Hope you look it up and enjoy.

 

Steve.

That was sad not to mention poignant. Poor Septic.

A great film - I've a copy on DVD that came free with a newspaper some years ago, as part of a series of classic war movies that they gave away...

 

....IIRC, the RAF loaned two actual Mk.Is and a Mk.II for the ground scenes, whilst the flying sequences were done using Portuguese Mk.IIs with the cannon removed...

Nice bit on interest thanks. Did they have the squadron markings wrong🤔 I thought I saw one letter then the roundel then 2 letters! I thought it should be 2 roundel 1.
