The information from several people given to us when the photo appeared on our facebook page is:
it is a MkIX, but with a Packard Merlin 266 making this a MkXVI. This
type was operated by 609 (West Riding) Squadron and TB911 was flown by
603 and then 609 Squadrons. The code 'RAP-F' further identifies this a/c
as a LF MkXVI e, and this type
was on charge with 609 Sqn from April '48 to February '51. The Squadron
code 'RAP' was allocated to 609 Sqn from May '46 into 1949, so dating
this photograph no earlier than April '48.
