Firstly Greetings to all here.

Im in need of help identifying what aircraft was once bolted onto the tailwheel im in possession of.Ive googled as far as i can and everything points towards it belonging to a Spitfire.
I think its the mk2 wheel but im no expert,im hoping theres a boffin out there somewhere...

It has these markings stamped into the hub..
DRG NO AH2184 ISSUE 12
SERIAL NO LK 119354/2

ANY help would be very much appreciated Smiley

Seeing the tailwheel stayed the same up till the retractable type in the MkVIII I would think it would be early to mid.
