Any additional information on this plane such as squadron or complete photos?

Is this any help? It doesn't answer your question about the squadron, but it does show a bit more of the fuselage and tail:

Looking at the image John provided I noticed something on that photo that the profile missed. There seems to be a third colour around portions of the black area near the #16 area.

Maybe it was a remain of a winter temporary camouflage. The photo shows more white areas than the profile, at least on the wingroot.

Makes more sense Winter wash than a bare metal portion like the profile.
