Hi Brian
Byron's photo is much better quality than that on the Great Escape site, which seems to be a quick "official" picture of the kind that would be used by a training unit. The IWM photo does however show him sporting a moustache, so it might make a difference if your use of it is relevant to a specific point in his life.
Regards
Dick
