Hi all
This is a pic of the ID plate my friend found metal detecting.
Could anyone give me any info on the aircraft it's from?

Drawing no.30008 refers to the wings, so the plate is from a sub-assembly, not the whole airframe, so I can't see any way of identifying the serial no. (it could, quite easily, have been fitted as a replacement, or brand-new, at any time.)  Interestingly, any drawing, commencing 300--, usually refers to a Mk.I, so it rather looks as though CB might have been making parts, before they managed to get started on whole Spitfires.
