One of the most fascinating aspects of aerial conflict in WWII was the subject of ‘Presentation Spitfires’. Although other aircraft were certainly procured in this manner, the Spitfire was seen as being the fighter of the moment and the one which would bring the Commonwealth deliverance against their enemies. Desperate to do their bit and support the war effort, communities around Britain and the Commonwealth put aside the hardships of wartime existence and enthusiastically gave what they could to their local Spitfire fund.

Taking great pride in the knowledge that their community could put their name on a new Spitfire that would represent them in the battles raging in the skies above Europe, these aircraft helped to galvanize the nation in their time of greatest need. The aircraft themselves were simply taken from the assembly line but were allowed to bear the names of the individuals and communities who had bought them, while being careful not to compromise the standard camouflage scheme.

The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft used by the Royal Air Force and many other Allied countries during World War II and into the 1950s as a front line fighter and in secondary roles. The Spitfire was first flown on March 5, 1936 and entered service with the RAF on August 4 1938. It served in several roles, including interceptor, photo-reconnaissance, fighter bomber, carrier-based fighter and trainer. The Spitfire was built in many variants, using several wing configurations. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only British fighter in continuous production throughout the war. When production ended in February 1948, a total of 20,351 Spitfires of all variants had been built.
