Hawker Hurricane's - in 1940 repair activity at the factory where the Auster was made.

Below is an extract from 'The Auster - A History' book - **LINK**

Towards the end of 1940 Taylorcraft were asked, by telephone, if they would undertake the repair of Hurricanes. Not having had any previous experience with stressed skin, light-alloy aircraft they asked the authorities to spare them a crashed Hurricane to study.

Two complete damaged aircraft arrived by road the following morning! The firm agreed to repair the Hurricanes, but additional floor space was required for this work. As a result they were granted the use of a factory in Mountsorrel as a sheet-metal shop, the workshops of En-Tout-Cas Ltd. at Syston, and Rearsby Aerodrome. Ratcliffe aerodrome was by this time used by the A.T.A. as a Ferry Station. Mountsorrel became No. 4 Works, En-Tout-Cas Ltd. No. 5 Works and Rearsby No. 6 Works, where a new hangar, today the main assembly hangar, was planned and built . This was used for the repair of the Hurricanes.

The airfield was extended towards Gaddesby to cater for the longer take-off run required by these aircraft. The first Hurricane was delivered to the R.A.F. in February 1941. At the same time all the tools and jigs for the MODEL 0 aircraft were brought up to Rearsby from Thurmaston and laid out in the old County Flying Club hangar. This last operation paid dividends a few months later when an official from the Air Ministry came to Taylorcraft to see if they had any civil aircraft in store to impress into the R.A.F. for communication duties etc.

An air attack on Tiddim Road by No. 42 Sqn RAF Hurricane IIs, October-November 1944. Ground scenes are possibly filmed at Palel, and could include Hurricanes of No. 34 Sqn. Hurricane "Q" shown taxiing is possibly 100+ mission veteran LB710 of No. 42 Sqn. This is how looked fighter-bomber operations from airfields around Imphal: Imphal Main, Kongla, Tulihal, further to the south Wangjing, and even further to the southeast Sapam and Palel.
