Identity of Shot Down Spitfire

From a recent EBay auction, there is this picture of a shot down Spitfire V. The Call letters look like "OM" or 124 SQ.

Any ideas?

Alas no it is not 124 sqdn ! Photo mirrored ; it is one of the 11 Spitfire IX lost on 26/09/1942 over Morlaix. This one is MD-F of n°133 sqdn, BR638. F/O G B Sperry was PoW.
