Just a 'Hot Pilot'

That's what was written on the reverse of this photo...

Unfortunately I do not have a serial number for this Hawk, and have no idea who the pilot is, but
there are some interesting details here for modelers, militaria collectors and general enthusiasts:
the outer gun on the port wing is not installed, the exhaust and chin intake plugs are in place,
and this fella wears the Third AF emblem on his left shoulder.
