    Quite a few of those don't really qualify as "BoB participants"

    The Westland Whirlwind only operated with 2 squads; 263 Squadron which took first deliveries of the type in July 1940 and 137 Squadron, which first recieved the Whirlwind in February 1941.

    263 squadron was based at RAF Grangemouth under No 13 Group and didn't use its Whirlwinds operationally until November/December of 1940, probably too late to see any action. 263 had been heavily battered over Norway and spent most of the latter half of 1940 reforming and training new pilots. It operated a mix of Hurricanes and Whirlwinds into 1941.

    The 4 engined heavies also entered service too late to be counted as BoB aircraft. The Lancaster flew its first operational sortie on March 10th, 1942. The Halifax was also a late comer, flying its first sorties exactly a year earlier than its larger stablemate.

    The Fulmar is probably another non starter for the Battle of Britian, its first actions were against the Italians in the Meditteranean in September 1940, escorting Malta-bound convoys off HMS Illustrious.
