Spot On: Derivation Please

Now, here’s a term I never use and seldom hear:  spot on.

As for definition, it means "extremely accurate or descriptive."  That much I can find in something called the Kernerman Multilingual English Dictionary, whatever that is.

However, the dictionary gives no origin for the phrase.  Sounds British to me.  Can anyone clarify?
