    Hello,

    I recently started browsing through old family archives, and came across this photo.. (taken probably around 19..20, most likely in UK or Poland)
    I have no idea what that aircraft is. I browsed through every single webpage, looking at different manufacturers etc and NOTHING looks similar to this. I'm afraid it could be a one-off prototype sort of thing.. (and I doubt that this is an Albatros, as many people are suggesting....)

    I think identifying the air force would make things much easier, unfortunately, I'm not sure about the roundels.. Finnish, or RAF perhaps?

    Could anyone be kind enough to help me identify the make and the model? Maybe ask your friends if you're not sure.. ?
    I'd every grateful for any information.

    I would say it looks like one of the Polish CWL WZ-X prototypes powered by the Gnome-Rhône Jupiter radial engine equipped with two-blade propeller. The one seen behind her looks like a Potez XV.
