Response to Did any Martin Marylands survive post-1945, and if they did, in what capacity?

AJ Press Monograph has a Maryland of GB 1/34 Bearn in 1945 in Southern France but during the war.
FANA had a multi issue series on the Maryland and in issue 161 it has photos of a 'liaison' version after the war.

They were flown by Groupe Liaisons Aeriennes Ministerielles (GLAM). Text lists the following aircraft as being on charge postwar:
123 aircraft name "Garigliano" used to transport General Juin
153 F-RADE
173 F-SCBG
182 F-SCBH
270 "Rhin et Danube" used to transport General de Lattre

Photos show the following:
Garigliano detail of insignia
Interior photo of VIP seats with windows
Exterior photo of same VIP aircraft with windows
Different aircraft showing left side passenger door and tricolor band
2 photos of Juin's A/C during the war in camoflage

The post war A/C were I surmise all natural metal. Some had custom doors for the VIP section behind the bomb bay, others may have not. The aerials for the radio were elaborate with three wires behind the pilot's cockpit.

I don't have the issues after 163, but 162 talks about Aeronavale but no mention of postwar service.
