Hawker: A hawker is a vendor of merchandise that can be easily transported; the term is roughly synonymous with peddler or costermonger. In most places where the term is used, a hawker sells inexpensive items, handicrafts or foods that are native to the area. Whether stationary or mobile, hawkers often advertise by loud street cries or chants, and conduct banter with customers, so to attract attention and enhance sales. When accompanied by a demonstration and/or detailed explanation of the product, the hawker is sometimes referred to as a demonstrator or pitchman.

The name of the Hurricane will forever be linked with the Battle of Britain, in which, with its partner the Spitfire, it added one of the most glorious chapters in the annals of the Royal Air Force. During that fateful engagement of 1940, Hurricane pilots shot down more enemy aircraft than all other defences, air and ground, combined. Later the Hurricane added its laurels in defence of Malta, in the Western Desert and in Burma; indeed no other Allied aircraft ever fought in as many theatres as did the Hurricane.
The project began life as a private venture, intended to meet the requirements of Specification F.36/34, issued in early 1935. The first prototype, K5083, was ordered on 21 February 1935, and made its maiden flight in the hands of Group Captain PWS Bulman on 6 November that year. The Hurricane, as it came to be named, was a winner from the start, and in June the Hawker Board of Directors decided to prepare for production of 1,000 aircraft on their own authority. This action galvanised the Air Ministry into action and in very short time an official contract for 600 Hurricanes was placed.
The first production Hurricane was flown on 12 October 1937. The first Hurricanes in service had two-blade fixed-pitch propellers. This was soon improved by the substitution of a de Havilland two-position three-blade metal propeller and, in 1939, the excellent Rotol constant-speed propeller.
The Hawker-type fusalage, which had featured in all, Hart variants and Furies since the 1920s, was retained in the Hurricane in preference to modern but complicated metal fuselage, in order to speed production of Hurricanes. By August 1940, the height of the Battle of Britain, a total of 2,309 Hurricanes had been delivered and 32 squadrons equipped, as against 19 Spitfire squadrons. At the outbreak of the war, Hurricanes were chosen to accompany the RAF bomber squadrons to France. The first enemy aircraft shot down by RAF fighters on the Western Front was by a Hurricane. The type was also involved in the desperate fighting in Norway.
On 2 August 1940 Hurricanes of No.261 Squadron were flown off the carrier H.M.S. Argus to relieve the hard pressed Sea Gladiators in the defence of Malta against attacks by the Italian Air Force. These were among the first Hurricanes to operate in the Mediterranean theatre, and joined a handful of Hurricanes which had been flown out to Malta from Britain the previous month via France and North Africa.
No Account of the Hurricane would be complete without reference to the work of the Merchant Ship Fighter Unit which, in 1941, helped to protect vital convoys in the Atlantic from attacks by the enemy maritime bombers. These Hurricanes, mostly time expired machines, were equipped to be catapulted from the decks of merchant ships and the pilot later parachuting into the freezing sea to await rescue.
In the late 1944 the 12,711th and final Hurricane built in Britain (there were also over 1,400 built in Canada) was completed.
