The standard ammunition load for a British Fighter in early World War 2 was the Caliber .303 round with eight (*) wing mounted machine guns. The rounds were in arranged with ball, tracer, incendiary, and armor piercing projectiles in-dispersed in the ammunition loading. Of special note was the B4/B4Z incendiary round that had soldered holes (over a phosphorus core) in the projectile that when fired melted from the friction of the projectile leaving the barrel which left a visible smoke trail as the bullet flew through the air. This is evident in the actual combat footage used in earlier films ("Battle of Britain") involving Spitifres or Hurricanes where British aircraft fired their machine guns, a line of spiraling smoke trails reach out towards their target. This type of ammunition was an aid to marksmanship. Later in the war the British moved to use tracer ammunition which leaves a bright colored trace in the air.
The Warner Bros. logo at the beginning of the film is light blue.
