Spitfire Mk Ia N3249 flown by Sgt Ralph Havercroft of No 92 Sqn, Pembrey, August 1940. N3249 was delivered to No 92 Sqn in late December 1939 and was one of the first Spitfire's replacing the old Blenheim IF's previously flown by the unit. This aircraft was damaged during a nocturnal landing on 31 August at Bibury but was restored to flying condition and passed to No 602 Sqn in early November. N3249 was lost on 14 February 1941 while the unit was stationed in Scotland. 'Titch' Havercroft's final tally was 3 destroyed and 1 shared destroyed, 2 unconfirmed destroyed, 1 and 1 shared probables and 3 damaged.

Spitfire Mk Ia R6596 flown by Plt Off Alan Wright of No 92 Sqn, Pembrey, August 1940. During his entire combat career Wright's personal Spitfire always wore the letter 'S'. He flew this aircraft on the night between 14th and 15th of August sharing the destruction of a 9./KG 27 He 111 sent to bomb the harbor in Cardiff. The other two out of the three sharing the destruction were from No 92 Sqn: Flt Lt R S Tuck and Plt Off D G Williams (5 destroyed and 1 shared destroyed, 1 and 1 unconfirmed destroyed, 2 probables and 6 damaged). Wright's final tally was 11 and 3 shared destroyed, 2 probably destroyed, 5 probables and 7 damaged. After the shared He 111 Wright used R6596 to down another He 111 on the night of 29 August and a third on the day of 11 September 1940. On that same mission he also claimed the probable destruction of a Bf 109E. In late afternoon on 9 September 1940 while patrolling Biggin Hill a gaggle of 109's dove on him and he only barely managed to land the stricken R6596 back in base. After repairs the aircraft served few months in No 131 Sqn in 1941 before it passed to No 52 OTU in October. R6596 was destroyed in April 1944 while serving with No 57 OTU.
