Don't think so. The cockpit area does not look right. The small blisters on the cowl are missing.

Nope - That's a Lysander. On your drawing you can see a small access at the aft empannge, clearly seen in the photo. I believe that prior to this aircraft meeting its demise, some of the windows were blanked out, perhaps for instrument or navigational training, or even photography work. In addition, the missing blister on the cowl signifies that this Lysander has a later model Bristol Mercury engine, I think the later models had an 870 hp engine in lieu of an 890 hp. In addition you could see the fabric torn away from the fuselage, exposing the internal structure.
 
yes, thank you, yet annother one we've already identified, read the rest of the tipic before posting in the future..........
