Both the baby Spitfire pics are delightful, but I do wish they would put an individual letter on it.

What a lovely way to return to Duxford.

FarnboroJohn the original N3200 doesn't have an individual letter on it in the photos I have seen of her.

I may be wrong but I believe P9374 originally had more codes than just 'J' but until they can ascertain for certain what then it will remain as it is?

It's what the BBMF refer to their Mk.IIa as, and seems to have been adopted by people to describe all early marks of the type, like the Mk.I pictured in this thread.
