Example text

The number of rounds carried was usually about fifteen per cannon. The shell wa solid, with a tungsten nose which was capable of penetrating 2in (50mm) of armour. Armed with four 20mm cannons, the MkllC was the most common of Hurricane Mklls with 4,700 built. The charge was designed so that it would hreak up on entering the armoured veh icle or tank to cause as much damage as pos ible. One Hurricane (Z2326) was fitted with Rolls-Royce BF (belt-fed) 40mm cannons, and went through various air tests during late 1941.

It eventually converted to Spitfire MkVs in March 1942, and moved to Luqa. The badge of 126 Squadron contains the Maltese Cross, signifying its formation on the island. When there were no air attacks against Malta, the Hurricane pilots took their chance to get back at the Italians. By the beginning of August, 249 Squadron at Ta Kali had received a number of Hurricane Mklls (mainly IICs), and had begun to carry out offensive sweeps over Sicily and reconnaissance sorties between Pozzallo and Scicli.

Stones was yet another veteran, having flown Hurricanes with 79 Squadron during the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain. When he arrived in Malta, he was just twenty, but had already been cred ited wi th ten ki lIs, and had already earned the award of the DFC. The pilots selected for the M FU were taken from both squadrons at Ta Kali and their Hurricanes had to be 'borrowed', as none were specifically made available. The unit operated a mix ofMkl and Mklls, depending on what was available at the time.
