Title: Identification needed on Possible Spitfire Part I have just purchased
Post by: Ziggy Sawdust on April 08, 2018, 09:22:21 AM
Hi Spitfire Crew

I have added some photographs of a piece of History I have just purchased, and wondered if the markings on the base can be identified to let me know what type of Spitfire it was for...

A little bit of History for you all ..My Fathers best friends Father worked on the Team with Mitchell....designing the Spitfire....(his last name was Baker)
My Dad worked on the Vulcans Flight controls..and worked at Dowty Boutlton Pauls at the factory that had the Defiant in the Museum downstairs.. I met some ladies who actually worked on the gun turret......
