Sorry for the thread necromance, but I have have some questions about the contenders for T.23/43.

I have read that five prototypes of the DH.105 were ordered but soon cancelled, can anyone confirm whether this is true?
Are there any details about the DH.105? I've seen nothing about this aircraft other than the snippet Hesham posted above back in 2017.

The Heston JC.1 seems to be equally enigmatic.

The P.106 and M.53 have been covered in depth elsewhere in other works, but the de Havilland and Heston designs seem to be forgotten - odd in the case for the DH.105 if it was indeed the runner up.
