The post-war period Avro Anson Mk I, must not be mistaken with the similar type that existed in the pre-WWII era in the Air Force. The first ones were transport airplanes while the second type were advanced-training airplanes, used during the war for naval co-operation purposes.
Twenty-four Anson served in the Hellenic Air Force in 1947, operating with the 355 Transport Squadron. Two of them were of the Mk IΙ type, re-fitted for medical purposes. The Anson were also intensively used for VIP, staff and cargo transportations and for night bombing missions during the civil war.
