“Operation Jubilee” took place on August 19, 1942 as a raid on Dieppe France. That morning Hurricanes and Spitfires were over Dieppe to provide cover for the Allied troops and to destroy as much of Germany’s assets as possible in the area. It wasn’t long before flak was being taken by the aircraft. One Hurricane was BN320/FT-A from No. 43 Squadron and piloted by Sqn. Ldr. Du Vivier. On this day BN320 made four low-level ground support sorties while accumulating damage each time. By the end of the day BN320 was too badly damaged to continue flying.Opening canopy

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.
