Looks like Su-2 Dive bomber.

 

Edit: Then again, there's a RAF roundel on the plane at the back. Which I guess it's a boomerang?

Should be. You can follow the rivet design from this pic.

It is indeed a Boomerang. Specifically, it is a prototype Boomerang fitted with a Fw190 style cooling fan.

 

I found the picture while digging through the National Archives of Australia. It was in a report on how the fan affected the cooling of the engine under standard and tropical conditions.

 

Edit: Also, the plane in the background is an Avro Anson.
