"SP" part numbers appear to refer to Armstrong-Whitworth aircraft; the RAF Museum have some drawings, but don't appear to have one matching yours. The "AW158" could be a real clue, but I can't find an A-W aircraft with that high a number.

Hi Edgar thank you for the information

Photographs are worth a thousand words; as Antoni has said, though, a site like Key is likely to have an A-W expert somewhere (or possibly know where they might have a dedicated "museum.")
