    Default Avro Anson Delivery to 311 (Czech) Squadron

    Hi,

    Trying to identify the Avro Anson aircraft used by No.311 (Czech) Squadron for training purposes in 1940/41. I don't have a copy of the excellent Anson file and I only have the Form78 K471-N9613 serial range. I believe, the Anson used were in the R series.

    Any help appreciated.
