Thursday, April 21, 1955


    Can anyone shed light on the truncated body of a Spitfire aircraft that was present in the lower south east corner classroom of KGV School up until the late fiftees. There was also a cut-away R.R. Merlin engine on display with it. It would be interesting to know this aircraft's history as I had heard that after the occupation, KGV was an R.A.F. hospital and that the aircraft was there for rehabilitation purposes.

The picture has just been resized , if you look at the wheels they are not round.

If you use photo shop or paint , you could resize the picture to its original dimensions  .


I hope that was what you meant :)
