Well, it's clearly of British origin - says so on the BB shell. Those drop-outs suggest maybe a 1930's to 1940's Claud Butler with 'Continental' style drop-outs, but the wrap round seat stays don't seem right for that - all the Claud butlers of that era I've had came with the style shown in the picture below of my 1935 model. The rather crude but interesting cutaways in the lugs and fork crown again suggest an early frame. Sorry I can't be of more help - try http://www.classicrendezvous.com/
