Back again, working on the next book.

I have a very obscure question: did the DH.84 have a parking brake? If so, how was it controlled?

If not, how were the main brakes controlled? Would it be possible to jam something against the lever/pedal/whatever to keep the brakes engaged while the pilot leaves the cockpit with the engines at their lowest power setting?

Answers for the DH.89 are fair game if the control setup was the same.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
