The Spitfire VBs of No 92 Squadron in May 1941, based at Biggin Hill, one of the front line stations in the south. The Mk V Spitfire now usually had the B armament - two 20mm cannons and four machine guns - after reliability problems with the cannons had been resolved. Had cannons been available during the previous summer Fighter Command's success rate would have been even better.
