Does anyone have a picture of P/O Colin Francis and/or his Hurricane L1965 please?

I understand that he was killed in that aircraft when it was shot down on 30th August 1940, crashing in Wrotham, Kent.

Than you

A portrait photo of Colin Francis can be found on p.142 of Kenneth G Wynn's book, Men Of The Battle Of Britain.

Thanks to you both.

Time to invest in the book I think :)

I have never found a photo of L1965 but would like to see one! I suspect some of the Hurricane production line photos include L1965 as there are photos of components stencilled L1965 in existence.

Hope you like the book!
