    Default BOAC Ansons in Canada 1947/48

    Slightly of topic, but I hope this is permitted.

    Apparently BOAC North America received two Anson Mk. Vs in 1947, on permanent loan from the UK government. The government had received them as free issue from the RCAF, but I can't quite make out the office that received them. It looks like "Air Liaison something something". They both received Canadian civil registrations: CF-DXK (ex RCAF 12193) and CF-DXJ (ex RCAF 12215). Both were based at Dorval in 1948 when they were sold to a Canadian aircraft broker.

    Can anybody explain what BOAC would be doing in Canada with these aircraft? Can anyone provide a better name for the UK government office that received them?
