A 1965 edition of Flight Global contains this interesting sentence:

'Beyond the BS.100 is the BS.111, no details of which are at
present available.
'

My instinct is that it would have been an effort to use BS.100 technology to generate a 'straight-through' version, much as the BS.58 was a development of the BS.53???

Thoughts?

From Andrew Dows book "Pegasus-The Heart Of The Harrier":

"The design of the BS111 was based on that of the BS 59 lift engine, but the bypass ratio
was increased. the fan pressure ratio reduced, and the number of high-pressure compressor
stages increased from four to six." Really an interesting book ! ;)
