RAAF Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VIII Z-PQ "Grey Nurse"

This Spitfire was the regular mount of Flight Lieutenant Ted Sly.
When Bruce Watson took command over 457th Squadron at the end of 1944, he wanted the squadron to adopt a common emblem and theme for all aircraft. Ted suggested the adoption of the name “Grey Nurse” and the shark´s mouth emblem for 457 Squadron´s Spitfires.
A vote was taken and his idea was adopted.
The aircraft was finished in the RAF post-Battle of Britain day fighter scheme of Ocean Grey, Dark Green and Medium Sea Grey.
