Sorry Fitter2, not a Taylor Titch. This aircraft is older than the Titch.

stevef is spot on Good eye. The speed placard has been blurred to obscure the Chilton name, however the Carden Engine placard was not retouched. Yes, that is a choke control on the right, as the engine was a 32-hp cast-iron Ford auto engine with the Carden modification of dual magneto ignition. The Chilton was also the only design I know of that was built in the De Havilland factory but was never named a DH product.
Seen is a Coventry based DW.1, G-AESZ built in 1937. You have control.

American military jet, weird offset flight instruments to make room for some radar sighting device linked to a central gunsight? 1950's?

sudden thought. Sabre dog

Sorry Dick, not the Sabre
American: Yes
There were many variants of this type and the one pictured above did have a radar fitted for night operations.
The type first flew in the 1940's.

Dick: I knew a guy who did an exchange tour on D's.

The way he described the cockpit it would have a large low centrally mounted radar display.

I'm thinking one of the F80 derivatives? Probably way off track as usual!

NutherA2. On behalf of Akubra, I can tell you it is not the F4U2 Corsair.

It's the most famous of Curtiss attack planes, the one with the steam engine. Woods
