It was assigned to No 6 Squadron R A F in Italy in 1943 and also operated in Greece and Yugoslavia. The aircraft was returned to the U K in 1983 and restored between 2001 and 2003 and flown by the Fighter Collection. The aircraft was acquired by Vintage Wings of Canada in 2006, the last Mk 4 in existence. It is painted in the codes of 6 Squadron R A F, known as the "Flying Can Openers", which operated the Hurricane in the tank busting and ground attack roles. Many Canadian pilots flew the cannon armed tank buster with 6 Squadron on operations in North Africa.
