Official photo of No. 74 Squadron showing the unit in Hornchurch at the time when Gloster Gauntlets were exchanged for Spitfires, a process which started in February 1939. 74’s early Mk.I Spitfires carried the pre-war code letters JH. Note the three-blade metal propeller on the Spitfire and black-and-white underside of the Gauntlet’s wing. [74 Squadron]
