Can anyone identify the purpose and colour of the twin discs set at 90 degrees to each other seen on this Zwicky re fueller?

Assuming the Hurricane is a Mk 1 can anyone say when the photo was taken, and whether such as set up on top of an Albion would have been seen during the Battle of Britain period? What colour would the Albion in this photograph be?

Thanks Mike

Hi Mike nice to catch up with you again, The double discs was still a requirement as late as 1950, some publications call for it to be orange some yellow ; That Hurricane picture was published in FLIGHT 8th feb 1940. I have seen little evidence of those double discs being used .
Mike I lost all my RAF Antar pics when my PC died any chance you could repost them please- both the ones of your ex Cardington machine with trailer and the earlier ones the RAF had.
regards TED

It is a prewar picture (note the serial still visible under the wing) of an early Mk.I Hurricane. However, the Albion is shown in camouflage which reportedly was not introduced until the RAF was deployed to France. Comments anyone?

Maybe the advertisers (non-military personnel and probably not particularly interested) superimposed an existing refueller picture alongside a random piece of sharp-end kit to look 'relevant' as we say today. Or then again, up against something that was readily available on photo day (and security cleared) a passed-over Hurricane in deep store because man power was not available to get it to its full mod state.
