Thanks! This design is mentionned in British Light Aeroplanes 1920-1940, but I would not have known this was a twin-boomer...

Millichamp sounds as a French name (meaning Thousand-field).

According to A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames, the name is Norman (originally "of Millichamp"). The name is interchangable with Millichap, Millechappe, and Milchap.

BTW, during the same period, BW Millichamp owned HM14 Pou-Du-Ciel, G-AERJ, according to the Golden Years of Aviation: http://www.goldenyears.ukf.net/reg_G-A9.htm

Interesting: Mr Millichamp owned a Pou-du-Ciel in 1936 then... designed a twin-boom light airplane in 1939. For me, this stands as a vey proof: twin-boom layout is better than Pou-du-Ciel layout... ;D
BTW, I have added the Millichamp pusher on my twin-boom 1939-45 update:

And thanks dear Jemiba for this delicious Double-Pou...
uh... I looked with Google to know if this was an unknown model, and it seems a fake photograph, while a wonderful one, thanks again. ;D
