Wonderfully atmospheric photo of Polish Spitfire Mk. VB JH-H of No. 317 (Polish) Squadron “Wilenski”, surrounded by a flock of seagulls, Northolt

Not fully shown on the picture, JH-H carried the serial number AD140. It served with No. 317 Squadron between September 1941 and March 1942, when its career ended through forced landing near Bolt Head, Devon while short of fuel on return from the fighter sweep over France.

The location is Exeter, late 1941. THe serial number can be seen in the original photograph. This version has been cropped.

I am pleased to have found this picture as Art Tech have based their RC model on this aircraft, I have one. You can buy and fly this model yourself. JH H lives on!
