Default Thompson Aircooled Engines

A friend has a small aircooled engine which I think is a Thompson.
The crank, flywheels etc etc looks the same as the Thompson Tiger.
(obviously without the hopper).
The head has the same configuration (exhaust at top & intake at bottom).
The cam, push rod are on the opposite side to most engines (ie Gade or Associated aircooled) the same a sthe pictured Tiger.
It has a brass carburettor with R & V cast on it.
The only picture I have found is in one of Alan Kings old advert reprint books.
Does anyone have a photo or know of any others?.
From looking on the web Thompson engines seem to be quite rare.
