Spitfire V (Merlin) - Single-seat Fighter.  Identification/Recognition Poster Issue 1 - April 1944.  Approximately  38 x 50.5cm.  Printed by Fosh and Cross Ltd. on fairly thin paper.  Shows the silhouette of this 'clipped wing' version of the famous fighter from the front, underside and side.   It has creasing and small edge tears that have been repaired using specialist ultra-thin acid-free archival tape that does not yellow, crack or harden and can be removed by a conservator.  There is a small ink stain on the left edge and paper loss in both top corners.  Fair condition but displays very well.  These would have been used in training schools and were also displayed in Mess huts on active RAF bases.  Will be posted in a card mailing tube.  Stock code P25512.
