Lords of the Sky - Duck Hunting in a Hurricane


At sunrise on the morning of the 18 January 1943 Lieutenant Mark Neill went duck hunting in Hurricane 7013. Most of the pilots of 7 Fighter Squadron had flown low over the marshy area on their return from sorties and had seen the ducks. Mark had seen more. He had examined the area intently; circling on numerous occasions to ascertain the possibility of landing in the adjacent field to do some duck hunting. The other pilots were all too glad to be home in one piece and wind-down with a beer in the mess. As the squadron was in the process of moving base and no engagements were planned that day, Mark had been given permission to bring back some ducks for a little farewell dinner celebration.
