Prior to September 11, 1940, Robert Stanford Tuck had been flying Spitfires with RAF No. 92 Squadron. On this date he was posted to the No. 257 (Burma) Squadron as the Commanding Officer and flying Hurricanes. In June 1940 Tuck was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and on October 25, 1940 was awarded a bar to add to his DFC. By the end of 1940 Tuck had accumulated 18 confirmed victories. In December 1940 V6555 suffered severe damage from enemy fire and was replaced by Hurricane P6864.

The Hawker Hurricane was a British single-engine fighter aircraft and the first monoplane fighter used by the Royal Air Force. First flown on November 6 1935, the Hurricane entered operational service with the RAF in December 1937. Together with the Spitfire, the Hurricane was essential in enabling the RAF to win the Battle of Britain in 1940, accounting for the majority of the RAF's air victories. The Hurricane was also adapted for use as a fighter-bomber, night-fighter / intruder and for ground support. A variant known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications which enabled operations from ships. More than 14,000 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including at least 800 converted to Sea Hurricane and 1,400 built in Canada). The Hurricane was built by, or exported to, several other countries during the war and used by their air forces.
