Response to Spitfire On A Beer Run Pic

I read somewhere that when they flew Spits from an aircraft carrier to defend the Island of Malta they could not get close enough for the Spits limited flying range (I think the fuel tank only held about 96 gallons) and so they used beer kegs for extra fuel tanks as no genuine tanks were available at the time. This could be your answer.
