  checkmysix Hurricane Skinpack (x12) 43 Sq 'Fighting Cocks' Tangmere,1940 Friday 16th August 1940...Flying Officer F.R Carey and pilots of 43 Sq defend their Base at Tangmere from attacking Ju-87's. Chris and Moggy. As far as I can find 43 Sqn didn't have under wing roundels during the BoB...(However I could be wrong, again...) I must admit, I've never seen any 43 squadron Hurricane Mk.Is with under wing roundels either. I suppose it's possible they might of had them\kept them when aircraft were transferred in from other squadrons. For CM6, your first pic looks kind of familiar. Did you base it on a painting by any chance? Thanks Guys I was wondering if either of you guys have a Photo of the underside of one as all the references that I used were Colour illustrations, Paintings shown below (which have the Roundel) as I couldnt find any Photos that show the underside for that Period And Moggy yes I did base the first picture on a Painting I saw on the net.
