Hi,

the Miles company designed the M.63B,a high speed long range
mail-carrier aircraft project,and can be powered by either two
RR Derwent Vs or by three Power Jet W.2/700S.

This schematic is from an article in The Aeroplane entitled "Before The V Bombers". Looks pretty much like this one though.

I found this while cataloging a copy of the 1946 printing of Gas Turbines and Jet Propulsion for Aircraft, by G. Geoffrey Smith, M.B.E. into the museum's collection.

There's good coverage of it, and related designs, in Tony Buttler's book on British Experimentals of WW II.
