There was a bit of a discussion on the 'Buss and Elston' thread - viewtopic.php?f=22&t=5214

Consensus seems to be - dunno. Doesn't look at all like a 14 to me. Suggestions include Finn put to other uses, stripped out and repurposed Firefly, I'm not sure I've seen a convincing answer yet.

Definitely not a 14. Just look at that bow, it would surely be vertical even on a classic, ie before the Fairey mouldiest of the late 40s
