In "Preparing for Action", Robert Taylor gives us a rare glimpse into a little-known area of flight operations; East Africa. Royal Navy Hurricanes of Fleet Air Arm Squadron 877 were based at Port Reitz, Mombassa, Kenya for anti-submarine patrols in the Indian Ocean. Here, a Sea Hurricane, equipped with tailhook, tropical dust filter, and underwing depth charges readies for a mission.
