So who legally owns them at this point? I presume Myanmar, but from the article it would appear they will give them back, probably for some kind of fee. But would the UK government claim them or will this gentleman, Mr. Cundall, have unfettered claim to the prize as the finder?

they may have been owned by the Burmese Government in the first place

36 brand new crated MkXIV Spitfires

Sadly, only a single Mark I Spitfire (the one that fought the Battle of Britain) is still flying.

ust a quick note to say that the MkII did indeed take part in the BoB as a few frontline squadrons were equipped with them in August and September 1940, with the bulk of the marks deliveries coming afterward.
