Finding the Fury

It's always rewarding when you can track back the origin of an image. Dr Brett Holman shared this poster on his blog Airminded recently [here] and after some discussion and internet searching, I was able to find the original photograph used by the artist of the Friends' Peace Committee as his model, and confirm the aircraft illustrated was, in fact, a Hawker Fury I.

The image looks like a standard Hawker Aircraft publicity image with the Brooklands racing track in the background obscured in the darkroom. However I'd be interested if anyone can confirm the image origin or other details.
