It is the IAR 16 Graeme.

Tidying up makes it easier to see….. and tell details. But that was a general statement about fuzzy pictures mate.

Over to you .

And mine was fuzzy because it was from another source than Aviastar. Didn't even check it there .

OK, was probably misled by something. I thought the G-ALEU was the only H.P.82 Hermes 5 that was fitted with turboprops, but two Hermes 5s with Bristol Theseus seem to have been built.
