Although not technically an ace, F/L James Nicolson was the only Fighter Command pilot to receive the Victoria Cross during World War II and deserves his place among Hurricane aces. On 16 August 1940, his aircraft was hit by enemy cannon fire and began to burn. As Nicolson was about to bail out, he realized his opponent had overshot him. He climbed back in the burning cockpit and shot him down, receiving grievous burn injuries in the process. He was awarded the Victoria Cross for this action.
