If I assume pre-war Europe:

France
Switzerland
Austria
Yugoslavia

Recently we have had one Austro-Hungarian and three French, but you say we have had one recently from this country.

I'll shoot for France.

Can't make much fit at the moment, but it's not another Caudron is it?

The cowling length makes me think a long in-line engine, possibly a Renault.

It is Trevor I guess the "during the war" comment made searches a little easier

Thanks Ken, "during the war" did help

Sorry it's not a silhouette, but it's all I can easily do here!

very odd.

This bipe seems to have lower surface leading edge high lift devices on the top wing!

I don't think so mate, at least there's no mention in my source. Are you sure it's not just the short glimpse of the spaced ribs of the upper wing looking like supports for a slat?

Just checked several other references, but no mention of any high-lift devices, slots, slats or anything else; but all being on the web, that doesn't mean to say there isn't

Off home now, will put my light back on when I get there!

I'm back!

Thanks Trevor.

Here's an easy one, as there is a big storm brewing and I'm not sure if that very fragile and very long telegraph line from Oz to UK will survive...
