I am from the Napier Power Heritage Trust and writing a book about the Napier Deltic engine.
This image is actually of Napier Culverin engine 85006 taken on 9th July 1936 and not the Jumo 204 as described. Napiers did indeed produce (only) 7 engines under licence. Not a successful design but it was later developed into Napier's triangular "Deltic" of which were fitted into the Australian Navy's minesweepers and the Ferry "Bass Trader" in the 1950's - 60's>
Hope this is of interest and assistance.
