Spitfire Mk. XVI being served by the personnel of No. 441 Squadron RCAF, somewhere in the Low Countries during winter 1944-1945.

The depicted aircraft, coded 9G*V belongs to RR250-259 range (the last digit being partially obscured by the tailplane is impossible to read). It could be RR257, a Spitfire Mk. XVI produced at the CBAF in October 1944, or RR253, Spitfire LF. Mk IX of the same production batch. [Public Archives of Canada]
