Hawker Hurricane Mkllc (AC018)


This model is an example of the Hurricane Mk.IIC with a fascinating story - that of Sqn. Ldr. Robert Alexander Barton of 249 Squadron, Ta' Qali, Malta . Robert 'Butch' Barton was born in Canada in 1916. Recruited in Vancouver at the age of 19, he was subsequently accepted into the RAF in 1936. After training with No. 41 Squadron, he was given command of 249 Squadron at the end of 1940. Six months later, his squadron prepared for duty in Malta. Between 1941 and his return to England two years later, 249 Squadron was one of the most successful fighter squadrons on the island. Ending his career as a Wing Commander, 'Butch' Barton returned to Canada, where he resumed a more relaxed and quiet life. He died on 2nd September 2010, aged 94.
