Still writing…

Dean Black sent me this picture of Hart Finley last week.

We can see the KH of the call sign above the 20mm cannon, but not the other letter which would be also under the nose of the Spitfire.

This is what Pat had asked:

I have the details on two Spitfires he flew. On April 23, 1945 the Mk XVI he was flying had the serial TD141, I’m missing the KH-? letter. On June 30, 1944 the Mk IX’s serial was ML415 but again no KH-? letter.

If I had the letters I’m missing I could build his model and add it to our museum collection.
