    Nothing doing for the tank number,it does not have an A.M stamp,
    which could imply its not military.
    BUT seeing as it has Supermarine printed on ,it has been custom made
    for a specific aircraft,(the SpitfIre had nose up/down trim,and u/c up down
    instruments that were also unique to that a/c.)
    My GUESS is that it could for either the Southhampton flying boat or
    the Seagull III as the Seagull V had a type 28 x42003 0-70 gallons gauge.
    Now all you need is an acurate picture of the panels of each.
    Cheers Mike

    Thanks for your help mike. I will try my best to find those panel photos. Strange that you should mention the spitfire u/c indicator, it was with the petrol gauge. Take a look, and thanks again.
