It's mistakenly called the Whittle, so you mighttry Googling Gloster Whittle, or just Whittle. I also did a very quick search for 'E28/39', you might find a lot more pics.
It looks like there is one in a museum somewhere.

There is one in the Science Museum in London, only two were made and that is the second.
