Several sources caption this photo as being Spitfire IIa P7883 of 611 Squadron. This is clearly a Spitfire with a flat line to the upper engine cover where the Hurricane's upper engine cover slopes downward toward the nose. This aircraft also has the Spitfire windscreen.

"You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terrors. Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival."
