Spitfire Mk.IX of No.253 Squadron

Here we see a Spitfire Mk.IX of No.253 Squadron, which the squadron operated from Italy and Corsica. The squadron can be identified from the SW code seen above the wing. The model can be identified from the MK247 serial number, which makes it a Mk.IX produced at Castle Bromwich.

This picture comes from the collection of Jim Tucker, who served with No.293 Squadron. Many thanks to his son-in-law Roger Bruton for sending us these pictures.
