Avro Anson in RAAF Service P2

Avro Anson DG824 '19' of 6 SFTS in flight. c.1944

Standard scheme on Anson trainers from 1944 was overall Yellow with Blue/White roundels. Typical training number (which sometimes was 'last 2' of the serial, other times not, as here in Black (repeated on the nose)). A couple of units used fuselage letters instead of numbers. Roundels were usually 30" on the fuselage and large 75" above and below the wings.
