|A public-minded English jeweler does his bit by promoting a local "Spitfire Fund." Lord Beaverbrook originated the idea of the so-called "presentation" aircraft underlying such funds. An individual, organization, or town could present the cost of constructing an airframe (for a Spitfire, this was set at £5000, although the real cost was nearer £12000!) and an aircraft would be allocated to bear the name of the donor (or any caption they chose instead) in (officially) four-inch-high yellow characters on the fuselage. Aircraft types other than Spitfires were also presented, but there were more presentation Spits than any other aircraft type.
