Well, I should have known better than to have assumed. Anyone with a Mk1-3
Spitfire find the same thing? The reason I ask is that I wound up making use
of that hole to mount an exhaust hanger temporarily, at least, and it got me
wondering why there would be a hole there to begin with. I figured it was
just on my frame, but then I was looking through Thomason's Spitfire Book of
Originality and noted the same drilled holes on an early Spitfire frame, just
like the one I have. And it just made me curious...

I'm afraid you've got me there, neither one of my frames has such a hole -
anywhere in the center of it (or near the center). There is a hole in each
corner on the bottom and it doesn't go all the way through, but that's
about it -
