Just been checking through the Spitfire drawings to identify a piece of spitfire. At one end is attached this casting. I think it is the rear Longeron fixing at Frame 19 - based upon the rivet number and positions. The numbers on it are 30027 then 11 or 77 then 8 or 88 or 83 then 10. Can anyone confirm or re-assign ? Thanks

300 = Mk 1 part (although could have been used on later mark(s)) 27 = Fuselage part. 77 = Item number. The rest of the numbers are unlikely to refer to the part number. Could be tool, forging / casting etc numbers.
