Catalogue ref: INF 3/1288Links to the Catalogue


A realistic depiction of a British Hawker Hurricane IIC attacking an enemy merchant ship. The image appears very like those in the ‘Into Action' and ‘Help Britain Finish the Job!', although those are in colour, and this black and white image has a note that indicates it for a series ‘War in Pictures'.
