Original IWM capition to that photo suggests it was taken during the final evacuation from France. If that statement is correct L2045 was the only SD-A during the Battle of France.
There is a photo of 145 Sqn aircraft taken by airman of that unit on page 310 in the The Battle of France Then and Now for comparison

Re: Crash Landed Hurricane

From the angle the photograph was taken, it should be possible to distinguish between the metal and fabric wings by the space between the centre-section/outer panel interface and the gunbay, there being one wing rib bay different. Sadly I don't recall which way it goes.

Well Paul

A good remainder that I should not bet (repeated, not here, 100 times)

Indeed 145 Sq had an awful day loosing six Hurricanes in the Calais area on the 27th.
