    WW2 factory or inspection stamp ID Spitfire??

    Does anyone know if a SM16 in a round stamp signifies Supermarine aircraft part from WW2? Also, what about AFL again stamped on a ww2 aircraft part??
    Cheers,Peter

    I'm not aware of that Peter. The Supermarine stamp was S6.

    Vickers at South Marston possibly. Data plates are SMAF.

    20 series Spitfires an 40 series Seafires.
