It could be G-ACIU De Havilland DH.84 Dragon.

Thanks, unfortunately the registration is obscured by marks on the print, cleaned it up a bit, but still not clear. I also checked De Havilland and thought it possibly might be a 'Gipsy Moth Giant'

I think the biplanes are Dragons...

Thanks; following Raymond's note, had another look through available images and concur on the Dragon DH.84, certainly with regard to the window outline, I was initially thrown by not being able to confirm the evidence of wing mounted engine pods on this image, but closer inspection indicates part of a prop above the visible lower wing.
