The Anson was one of the longest serving aircraft in the RAF. It entered service with 48Sqn in 1938 and the T21 varient was withdrawn from duty in1968. Designed for Training and Communications it had some notable victories in Coastal Command where they was credited with several U Boat kills. It served in all theaters and wore all the various camouflages but looked especially smart in its original Silver Dope finish. My own favourite variation was the "Float" Anson.
