What are the BOAC titles about in the photo above? Were these applied as a special reirement farewell thing?

We brought the aircraft to Bruntingthorpe to sell it to the MOD

The faux BOAC markings, on one side only, were applied by BA engineering staff, in their own time, using surplus materials.
(Still did not stop one pilot writing to the BA News moaning about all the cost and time wasting for the very temporary change WNA's livery).
Clearly the Landor upper fuselage grey differed from the white BOAC livery, it was superficial but looked good, had the desired effect.
I certainly went out and photographed it on the ramp!
