Yellow Captured Fw-190 G(?)

In my photo archives I have a color picture of a captured yellow Fw-190. Notice the Spitfire IX or VIII in the background. Any ideas as to identity?

It should be the Fw 190 A-5 / U8, captured & overpainted by No. 111 Sqn in North Africa.
Spitfire in the background is apparently Spit IX (JU-W)
Considering his expertise with African Butcher Birds, maybe my friend Andrew will have some more info on this interesting bird.

Kind of "Off-Topic" Question for you Kaki - Hope you don't mind me asking?:
I've noticed you have asked quite a bit of questions about Fw 190s in the past but all the photos you had in your posts are gone... did you remove them yourself or its some kind of automatic process?

I removed them as I was running out of space. I can still bring them up if someone is interested.

OK Great! Might be asking for some of them on later dates..

Hope that the note above about the yellow 190 helps too.
