BAC R.14 variable geometry aircraft



Can anyone tell me about the R.14 which was a variable geometry concept worked on by BAC at Warton? This appears to have been one of the pre-Tornado projects, but I don't know which one. It does seem to have got as far as windtunnel testing but probably not much further.

Any information about this project would be very welcome indeed!
Is it possible that the R.14 is part of the BAC P.45 development programme? Does anybody know anyone who worked at Warton on the P.45 who might know more?
"R14" sounds vaguely familiar perhaps from AFVG configurations? I'll look when I get home.
