I have a section of engine cowl that I think may be Anson. The part numbers on it are 6A E768 6 _ 768 6C 768 7G E768 6E --- With inspectors stamps N in a circle DTD in a circle BZ I think the E is Avro speak for cowling. Any Anson cowl owners out there to confirm ?

I don’t recognise those numbers. Any chance of a pic?

The panel fasteners certainly look like the ones used in abundance on the Anson. hth

Just a thought - as the Anson was Cheetah engined ( and cowled) so was the Oxford and Envoy etc. The Oxford was 10.... The Envoy would be 6..... Although there are no letters in this Oxford part number.

We've got an identical panel here at Ronaldsway. I'm sure I found a photo showing that the panel fitted around the Anson oil cooler somewhere but I can't find it now.

Thank you. I was more convinced that it was an Avro part.
