Antenna on Spitfire Mk VIII

Recommended Posts

Hello. I've come upon a photo of Spitfire VIII JF716 with what is to me an unknown antenna on the rear fuselage, slightly forward and above of the serial.

 

The photo can be seen here https://allspitfirepilots.org/aircraft/9055 (I'm not  posting it here for copyright reasons)

 

Does anyone know what this antenna is ?

Hello

It is too short for VHF whip antenna and the regular VHF radio antenna is there anyway. Pure speculation, of course, but I would say IFF. Cheers

Jure
