I think that you'll need to put a little more information onto that enquiry; according to all the information, that I have, Castle Bromwich didn't deliver any Spitfires until June, 1940, P7280 going as a trials airframe, and P7281 going to 612 Squadron.  Their 49th airframe, in numerical order, was P7328, which was delivered 16-8-40, and went to 603 Squadron 17-10-40.  After repair, following an accident, it went to 74 Squadron 11-3-41, failed to return 27-3-41.
