This prop & spinner is seen on many Mediterranean and Pacific theatre Spitfire Mk V's.  Check your reference photos for correct prop & spinner.  Many photos of this combination can be found on the Australian War Memorial website, including photos of Clive Caldwell standing in front of a Spitfire Mk V using these blades.  Another very interesting photo can be found on Page 143 of Wings of Fame Vol. 18.  This photo shows two Spitfire Mk V's undergoing service on Malta, one Spitfire has the early De Havilland blades, the other has these wider Rotols.
