    I am doing a project and could do with some photos - public domain or your own stock for book covers... it's a panic job, and I only have until Monday before they go to be published - yes I know, but I was only handed this today and I need the money, having had no projects since April...

    Anyhow, if someone can find some reasonable quality photos for me it would be a fantastic help as I have 3 covers to modify/correct and 3 new ones to make by Monday, and I know I'm struggling...

    What I'm looking for:

    Spitfires (Mark 1s and 2s)
    Spitfire pilots
    Hurricanes (Mark 1s)
    Hurricane pilots
    Chain Home Radar and other radio gear
    Maps of 1939-1940

    Period is best, but anything relevant to the Battle of Britain like a museum pic of a Hurricane Mk1 will be good too

    Time is not with me on this, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you will all pull through and make my Xmas...

    Pic number 1 is Hurricane pilot.

    Pic 2 is Spitfire pilot

    But the map I assume your looking for Battle Of Britain?

    Then a huge modern Hurricane Mk1 pic.

    Best I can do at short notice I'm afraid. All taken at Duxford this year. The Spit is the only flying Mk1, once used by Ginger Lacey.
    Cheers, Terry.
