Hi yes a couple of other people have said it could be a whirlwind but need to confirm before having it painted up as one
The light blue I was told could be a gillot?

The black Holdsworth is not the later design of Whirlwind. Possibly a Scirocco which was introduced in 1950 but dropped by '53 and called a Whirlwind in its final year. Do you have a serial number ? That would allow us to get a handle on likely time period.
Beautiful lugs; well worth getting professionally restored and lug lined.

The light blue frame is Nervex lugged so generic. Any other ID such as serial numbers ? Any holes on head tube for a badge ? Pictures of BB and rear fork ends ?

Not so fast, while I do agree that this looks like a Nervex lug set the bicycle could still be well made. In fact it looks litke the lugs received quite a bit of work particularly around the head tube.
