The Spitfire Mk.1 first became operational in July 1938 at Duxford, Cambridge. At the beginning of WWII 9 RAF squadrons were equipped with the Mk.1’s with two others converting to the new aircraft. By June 1940 the Mk.1 was being replaced by the faster long-range Mk.II but not before the Mk.I had bore the brunt of the Battle of Britain. The Mk.I also flew protective cover over the evacuation of Dunkirk. The Mk.1A had 8 machine guns instead of 4, a bulged canopy, a 3-blade propeller, self-sealing fuel tanks, armored windscreen and armor plating in front of and behind the pilot.

In December 1939 Spitfire Mk.I N3162 arrived at No. 41 Squadron at Hornchurch and given the unit code EB-G and assigned to Eric Lock. Lock scored 21 victories during the Battle of Britain. On November 8, 1940 EB-G was damaged and made a forced landing. He was then assigned Mk.I P7544 and on November 23 1940 he was wounded. 6 month later he returned to No. 41 and one month later re-assigned to No. 611 Squadron as Flight Lieutenant and given Spitfire Mk.V W3257. On August 3, 1941 he never returned from a mission.
