    It's 'Z5140', a 1942 MkXIIa, up for auction last December.
    Nice shot - better without what appears to be an 'artificial' prop spin though.

    It's the Canadian-built rough equivalent, and painted to represent a MkIIb, which I believe was based on Malta. I have the auction catalogue with the details, but not to hand at the moment.
    Here's a side view of the same aircraft, to show the colour scheme, taken at Duxford a few years ago.

    Interesting pic from the Facebook Hurricane page . Never seen this one before Hawker Hurricane PR Mark IIB, BM969, of S Flight No. 3 Photographic Reconnaissance Unit, based at Dum Dum, India, in flight over West Bengal.

    Completely of topic aside.
    Dum Dum is near Calcutta and was the site of an arsenal in the days of the Raj. Original home of the dum-dum bullet :)
