Canberra nose wheel collapse, Akrotiri

Apologies if this is far to random a question to ask, but through if anywhere might have the answer its here

my Grandfather served at RAF Akrotiri between 1955 and 1958, during his time there with 103MU he spent many many hours repairing a re-skinning a Canberra following the nose wheel collapse on landing.

Now he was always under the assumption that one of the many altitude records broken by the canberra was completed by this aircraft, and in fact its landing at akrotiri was directly following a record attempt

Talking through with him he can't remember serials etc, however chatting through WK163 the other day we wondered if there was anyway of finding out which aircraft it was.
