    What do you mean by cocarde?
    I've heard of RAF WWII lower wing roundels being referred to as cockades but I'm not seeing a roundel anyway

    I'm going to go with Hawker Hurricane port wing leading edge root section, there does appear to be a filler cap visible on some of your photos

    Hi,
    Correct....You should look for the small fabrication stamps. For example a Spitfire build at the factory at Castle Bromwich would have a small circular stamp with the lettercode VACB followed by a number. That will give you a good lead identifying the type of a/c. Use the link I include to our website and look at photo 11 to see what I mean.

    On Saturday, August 13, 2005, the Arga performed the salvage of a RAF Spitfire LF MkIXe. The device was probably shot down by FLAK on 08/02/1945.

    These stamps are quiet common on almost every part.

    Cheers,
    Sander

    p.s I see that I have to give our webmaster a hint for the text in the link and title of the webpage.....!?

    Does the piece straighten out? Could you map it to this?
