This Spitfire Mk XIV was built late in 1945, too late for wartime service and was sold to the Indian Air Force, probably around 1947.

Originally ordered as a Mk PRIX, restored as a MkVIII, now a Mk XIV, this Spitfire certainly exemplifies the reason for much confusion over identifying the various marks and models of Spitfires that were built or modified.

The colour scheme is that of a Spitfire operating in the SEAC theatre of operations. You can even buy a Corgi toy Spitfire in these exact markings.

The markings YB-A are those of the Spitfire flown by James "Ginger" Lacy. He was credited with 28 enemy aircraft destroyed. nine damaged and five further probables.

Ginger Lacy may have destroyed up to 60 enemy planes, of which five were detroyed within five days of his first operational flight!

Not bad for a beginer!!
