Retro 51 Limited Edition Hurricane (Mann Inc Exclusive)* 

    The final part of the Battle of Britain trio has arrived. Three options are available, the Collectors Edition the Notebook Edition and the Standard Edition. Please see below for more details. 

    Our new Hurricane exclusive is a tribute to 242 Squadron and in particular a very special pilot, who refused to let a life changing accident stop him from fighting for his country.

    Group Captain Bader was a Royal Airforce flying Ace, with 22 confirmed aerial victories, 4 shared victories, 6 probable victories and 11 enemy aircraft damaged. What makes this even more remarkable is that Wing Commander Bader was flying as a double amputee, enduring the removal of both of his legs. Having survived a daring stunt previously, he refused to be grounded. After being retired from the RAF due to medical grounds he re-enlisted and returned to the RAF at the outbreak of the Second World War. The spirit of resilience, skill and bravery made Group Captain Bader one of the finest and most inspirational pilots of WW2. 

    The Retro 51 Tornado Hurricane is a retractable rollerball pen with a trademarked knurled twist-top. Mk I Hawker Hurricane, Reg LE-D has authentic WWII Day Fighter markings and features acid-etched printing to recreate plane panels, exhausts, rear fabric and wooden construction showing the stringer at the rear of the aircraft. It has then been printed with the camouflage, nose art, RAF Roundel and Squadron Leader Bader's squadron pennant. Each pen is finished with black nickel trim and the top disc features the RAF fin flash.

    The Tornado Hurricane takes a Schmidt P8127 rollerball refill, or alternatively you could fit an EasyFlow refill if you prefer ballpoints.
