Wouldn't that be a Manchester?

Not as mature as a Manchester Kevin, its turrets aren't starting to stick out yet.

Mike, I see what you meant about dates - for what was a fairly light aircraft, that's a bloody long time between artist's impression ( April 1943 ) and actual first flight ( July 1945 ). I suppose Reid & Sigrist had the design ready to go, but were too busy doing other work in the height of wartime. Very interesting; I read last night that the R.S.3 /4 is being restored to flying condition. It's remarkable that it has survived. :)

I'd guess it was the wing position with the RS3 having the wing set low on the fuselage and the RS1's being somewhat higher. The one in Mike's clue clearly has the low-set wing.

I'd like to claim that I was suckered into the RS1 because of Mike's Lewis Caroll clue but it's just an excuse - I should have checked for details like that that. :doh:
I must admit that I also didn't look further than my nose & relied on the Lewis Carroll blind alley! Must slow down & investigate better next time!
