    Default Hawker Hind K5404?

    Hi all, I have an original photo of a Hawker Hind (I think) with the registration K5404. When I look this up on the internet all I can find is that K5404 was a Spitfire. Can anybody inform me, were serials re-used? What happened to Hind K5404? or was the serial correct in the first place. Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Andy

    I think you'll find the Spitfire in question was the prototype which was actually K5054
