The Anson had its first public outing at the 08 Cockpitfest at Newark Air Museum over the weekend 14/15th June.
Due to the bad weather it was the first time that I had seen all the individual restoration projects on her all assembled together.
Examining the remains in detail has shown two possible identities.
On the rudderpedals is a crayon marking of "1524" which may be short for 11524 but more likely is that a bored navigator has used his dividers to engrave "a/c 8249" on the back of the pilots parachute box.
Both serials will be researched to see if they fit.
