 Above; Luftwaffe calander image depicting Bf 110's from 9./ ZG 26 coded '3U' based on Sicily photographed on a convoy escort sortie in the autumn of 1941 over the Mediterranean. These are most probably 'E' variants - note the underwing 900 ltr drop tanks.The Staffelwappen can be seen on the nose of the aircraft – a stylised " Hahn" or cock over the double chevron of the Zerstörerverbände.
