it's a Typhoon from No 182 Squadron. The picture was taken between January, 1945, when the Sky fuselage band was deleted, the black spinner was introduced, and the Type C1 upper wing roundel was introduced, and September 1945, when No 182 Squadron was disbanded.
Bristol 188 (1962) was a British supersonic research aircraft built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in the 1950s. Its length, slender cross-section and intended purpose led to its being nicknamed the "Flaming Pencil". It failed to attain the designed M2 speed and couldn't maintain top speed long enough to study thermal effects of supersonic flight. Cancelled in 1964.
