This is a tough one.
The petrol valve in the lower right corner can be typically British.
Something just after WW1 and somewhat bigger than a Sopwith Camel or such fighters.

A bit unfair perhaps as there is nothing in the pic to lead you to an answer. This is in fact a scarce development of a much better known aircraft so the base type will be accepted.
British, first flight a year after the Camel and much bigger and far more sophisticated. Excellent performance and ordered in thousands but only a few hundred actually built.

Many enjoyed lengthy careers after the war in various guises.

Ah! Too much information! Yes, a 'tinsyde.
Impressive aeroplane for its time. Survived in military service in Spain until 1937 apparenty!

If this is correct, I'm afraid I'll have to declare open house:

Breguet Alize would be my guess.

Your photo of #2969 is clearly not from an Alize.
I now post it in different frame as the new challenge

Indeed a French Crusader.
The photo indeed pops up when you search for Alize cockpit.
This crusader is in the same museum aeronaval in Rochefort France.

(I posted a challenge of the Alize gate guardian museum
in Which Aerodrome)

The ejection seat looks like a Martin Baker mk10.
Which is only used in the Tucano and the Super Tucano.
That fits the canopy shape but not the HUD and dash.
