                                      This scratchy print came from Canadian Pacific Railways.  I had requested a photo of a CPAL
                                      Anson and received this.  Since it was just after WW II that was probably all they had.   Some
                                      2,882 Ansons were built in Canada by Federal Aircraft, although the above machine was an
                                      imported UK-built machine powered by Armstrong Siddeley Cheetah engines. The first Canadian
                                      built Ansons were Mark IIs, with Jacobs L-6MB engines, whilst the most common Canadian
                                      variant was the Mk.V with round windows.
