Guitar Fool's photos: Dad's Hawker Hurricane


taken circa 1942. My Dad carried this picture in his wallet until the day he died. From what I can gather, his squadron was strafing German tanks in the second Battle of El Alamein when he got hit by ground fire. Leaking oil, his squadron leader told him to head back to base, and he got jumped by an ME 109..

yeah.... I'd say he was lucky
